ACOR has supported scholarship and academic exchange in and about Jordan for over 50 years. Throughout the decades, several long-term fellowship programs and projects have been initiated and sustained by directed donations of dedicated supporters. These include named fellowships as well as the Library (including the Ogilvy Endowment and Boraas Fund), the Petra Church Conservation Initiative, and the Temple of Winged Lions Cultural Resource Management Initiative.

The links to the left and linked images below connect you to pages explaining the provenance and purpose of each directed fund. When making a donation to ACOR, you may indicate a specific fund to which you wish to contribute; we will ensure that your gift reaches its intended beneficiaries. You may also request that your donation to any fund be listed as in honor or memory of a specific individual or individuals.
