Levels
Choose a giving level

$30

Plaster

A gift at any level will gain access to weekly updates through our "Lab Notes" blog. There, you will be able to follow the progress of our students and staff as we uncover and curate these important fossils.

$75

Pick

Donating at this level will provide important laboratory supplies, like archival adhesives, for the long term conservation of fossils.

$125

Shovel

Your gift will help to pay for curation supplies, including materials to make custom padded cradles for fossil bones.

$250

Collections Assistant

A donation at the Collections Assistant level will allow the purchase of metal collections drawers, so that we can safely house the newly prepared bones.

$500

Preparator

Your gift will help to pay students as they open and excavate plaster field jackets full of fossils. Donors contributing $500 or more will also be invited to an open house in the paleontology collections, receiving guided tours of our facilities and seeing demonstrations about the research and the students that you are helping to support. Not in Austin? We can arrange for a virtual tour via Skype.

$1,000

Collection Manager

A gift at this level pays for a shelving unit and supplies to house fossils in climate controlled storage. With a $1000 contribution, you can also join us for dinner and a private tour of the laboratories and collections.

$5,000

Curator

A donation of $5000 covers the complete curation of a cabinet full of fossils. This includes purchasing a cabinet, drawers, housing materials, and labor. Gifts at this level will include a plaque on the cabinet door, with thanks to the donor or in tribute to an individual.
