The Script Encoding Initiative at UC Berkeley

Donate to SEI today

and help to digitize the world's writing systems

Online donations to SEI are now possible!

Personal Checks (in U.S. dollars) should be made out to "UC Regents", with "Script Encoding Initiative" written on the memo line, and sent to:

Script Encoding Initiative

c/o Deborah Anderson

University of California, Berkeley

Department of Linguistics

1203 Dwinelle Hall #2650

Berkeley, CA 94720-2650


If a letter accompanies the check, it should specify that the money is a "gift." Donations are tax-deductible in the US within the limits as prescribed by law (see IRS Publication 526). Two and one-half percent (2.5%) of donations go automatically to the campus Development Office, as is usual for gifts to the University of California at Berkeley.

In-kind contributions are also helpful. SEI is in need of volunteers, as mentioned on our home page.

Donations to SEI help support SEI work. Funds are used primarily to pay script encoding specialists and graduate students to do research, and write script proposals on a per-script basis. Funding also covers research-related travel, administrative costs, and website maintenance. SEI's Progress web page gives an overview of project achievements.
