Donate to the Press

When you donate to the University of Cincinnati Press, you are ensuring stability and growth for publishing among students, faculty and the professional scholarly community.

UC Press’ advancement program draws on passionate philanthropic partners to help develop innovative publishing programs, create impactful publications and publishing lists, and ultimately raise awareness for the power of the press. In addition to publishing, the UC Press is a real-world learning destination for co-op students, interns and graduate assistants who are interested in acquisitions, marketing and web development.

Your gift to the UC Press can directly aid in publication of a book, launching fresh press initiatives, supporting co-operative learning and more.
