Giving to the Centre of Jaina Studies

Save Prakrit at SOAS 2023

This campaign is set up to cover the administrative costs of maintaining this unique SOAS tradition. By making a donation, you can help us ensure that teaching in Prakrit remains part of SOAS and its research on Jainism.

This research is spearheaded by the SOAS Centre of Jaina Studies (COJS). The aim of the centre is to promote the study of Jaina religion and culture by providing an interdisciplinary platform for academic research, teaching and publication in the field of Jaina Studies.

Giving to the Centre of Jaina Studies

Jaina Studies at SOAS aims to promote understanding of Jainism worldwide. Support is essential to ensure that the activities of the Centre continue. Without sponsorship it would be impossible to sustain the range of its public activities and to make them freely available to everyone.

If you would like to be involved in supporting Jaina Studies, you can give a gift by credit card, by direct debit, or you can simply send us a cheque against a receipt, made payable to “SOAS (Centre of Jaina Studies)”.

If you would like to make a gift to Jaina Studies please donate online. Regular gifts make a huge difference to our ability to plan Jaina Studies activities in the long term, so monthly, quarterly or annual gifts are a huge boost to our outreach and scholarly initiatives. Please select the Centre of Jaina Studies from the list of philanthropic projects around SOAS.

If you are looking to make a tax efficient gift in the US, we have a 501(c)3 with full tax receipts for every gift and you can donate a single or monthly gift.
