Sound Future Campaign - Overview
Share |

In September 2011 the Society for Ethnomusicology launched its Sound Future Campaign as a concerted effort to increase the impact of our field in both academic institutions and the public sphere. Thanks to the generosity of our members and friends, we have raised almost $450,000! The many gifts received, ranging in size from $4 to $10,000, constitute a major investment in the long-term future of the Society and its work.

SEM deeply appreciates the generosity of its membership and supporters over the past several years. Special thanks also to the Sound Future Campaign Committee (2011-2016): Honorary Chair Bruno Nettl; Campaign Co-Chairs Gage Averill, Harris M. Berger, Beverley Diamond, and Anne
K. Rasmussen; and Committee Members Judith Becker, Philip Bohlman, Robert Garfias, Ellen Koskoff, Portia Maultsby, Ingrid Monson, Daniel Neuman, Thomas Porcello, Timothy Rice, Kay Shelemay, Ruth Stone, Bonnie Wade, Christopher Waterman, and Deborah Wong.

At present, Sound Future Campaign donations are being used to support a variety of SEM initiatives, such as the 21st Century Fellowship, Annual Meeting travel awards, Diversity Action Program awards, K-12 education programs, a public/applied ethnomusicology initiative, and publications such as Ethnomusicology Translations. SEM has been able to develop these projects through investing and spending Sound Future monies.

Donations can be made easily online here or in the Membership area of the SEM website.

Thank you for participating in SEM’s ongoing work to build a sound future for ethnomusicology!
