Membership and Donations


ARC financially supports the production of the academic journal Theopoetics, the annual gathering of the theopoetics working group at the meetings of the American Academy of Religion, and the annual Theopoetics Conference for practitioners and scholars. Future possibilities are being explored in regards to regional events and periodic online seminars. Your donation to ARC signals (1) your interest in the dynamic work that is coming from the exploration of theopoetics and (2) concretely helps us to maintain the journal and secure space for events including the annual AAR meetings and conference sites. ARC is a 501(c)3 charity philanthropy, so your donations are tax-deductible.

Your donation to ARC allows you to enter you into membership in The Association for Theopoetics. Wanting to remain in resonance with the theopoetic emphasis on inclusion, while the recommended donation amount is $25, membership is accepted on a sliding scale with no one being turned aside.

For logistical purposes, memberships will always run from November 1st through October 31st of the following year. This helps us track where our support is coming from, how much is coming in year-to-year, and from whom. Remember, the cost is on a sliding scale so you can give whatever you feel you can manage.

If you're donating today as part of #GivingTuesday, make sure you tag your donation when you check out so that we know to earmark it for the Young Adult Scholarship Fund.
