SHARP is a registered nonprofit in the United States (a 501(c)(3) organization). You will be emailed a receipt for your donation, including the portion of the Sustaining or Patron membership levels that qualifies as a donation. Donations to SHARP allow us to fund several prizes, awards and fellowships , including ECR Lightning Seed Grants and our new BIPOC Scholar Research Development Grants. They help support our publications, including Book History, Lingua Franca , and SHARP News. They also allow us to subsidize conference technology and travel.

To show our appreciation, starting in 2022, Sustaining Members, Patrons, and Donors will be listed on our Annual Report, which is shared at our Annual General Meeting and posted online. If you do not wish to be included in that listing, please contact the Membership Secretary at
