How you can help

The cost of hosting one Peter Gow Memorial Lecture will be in the region of £2,000. This sum will allow for the travel and accommodation costs of an expert speaker and will facilitate the wider academic and learning benefits for the St Andrews community.

CAS hope to inaugurate the Lecture with an initial fund of £10,000, thus ensuring that Pete’s legacy is honoured for the next 10 years.

A fund of around £30,000 would allow CAS to endow the lecture in perpetuity, ensuring that the legacy of Pete’s enthusiasm for social anthropology, his students, and emerging academics is honoured at St Andrews for many years to come.

If you would like to discuss making a contribution to this important fund, please get in touch with Alex Hayes or Craig Rutherford. Contributions can also be made online through Saints Funder.
