Do you like what you’ve seen on the UCMP websites? Have you enjoyed a visit to the exhibits or a community event such as Cal Day? Are you a paleontology fan who wants to see UCMP remain an internationally-recognized collection, research and instruction facility? Then perhaps you’d like to give a little back to UCMP.
Your financial support will ensure that UCMP continues to reach its goals of community involvement and outstanding science education, while remaining one of the world’s foremost institutions for paleontological research.
What can you do?
Make a direct contribution to the museum
The UCMP has several programs which are directly supported by donations. Currently, we are looking to grow our endowment for our UCMP Education and Outreach Fund to help ensure the long-term future of this core component of UCMP’s mission.
Donations to the Anthony Barnosky Honorary Fund for Graduate Student Support greatly supports graduate student research, and UC Museum of Paleontology Fund will help support our shorter-term programming. Annual disbursements from the William A. Clemens Memorial Fund in Vertebrate Paleontology will support the maintenance of the vertebrate paleontology fossil collection.
You can make a direct, charitable donation on behalf of UCMP via Berkeley’s secure Give to Cal website. Give to Cal also has additional information about other forms of donation and payment methods
