The Cummings Center relies on patron support.

The Drs. Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Center for the History of Psychology is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization that relies on donor support to explore our shared humanity through the collection, preservation, and interpretation of history. The Cummings Center is supported primarily through gifts from visitors, foundations, and other donors. We rely on your donations--large and small--to help us preserve and interpret the historical record.
