You can make a donation to support all JASP programming, to help us keep costs and admissions prices down.

DONATE BY SHOPPING (Jane’s favorite method):

SHOP LOCAL: Enjoy our silent auction and JASP merchandise at the program itself. All proceeds from the silent auction support teacher scholarships, and merchandise sales support our general programming.

 ETSY: Shop at our new Etsy store, “Mrs Elton’s Pearls,” and all the proceeds go to our programming. All items are handmade by loyal and talented JASPers. We are listing more items each week.

AMAZON: Select Jane Austen Sumer Program as your favorite charity with Amazon Smile, and every time you shop with Amazon, a small percentage goes to JASP. (You just have to remember to order from the Amazon Smile website, rather than the regular Amazon website, and Amazon will keep track of your chosen charity.)

PAYPAL: When you use Paypal, you can add a dollar or two to your purchase that goes directly to JASP, or directly donate at Just search for Jane Austen, and we are right there!

Thank you for supporting the Jane Austen Summer Program!
