To Donate using PayPal

The RAI needs your support. We are an independent charity dedicated to anthropology. Please can you help us with our essential work to promote the public understanding of anthropology by making a donation today. With your support we can continue to deliver our inspirational online events programme and run our flagship events (London Anthropology Day, the RAI Film Festival and our international conferences). We can continue our essential support of anthropological research, to care for our archive, manuscript and photo collections and develop our education programmes to create globally informed citizens.

Your support today, no matter how large or small, can make all the difference.
