Whether you are a young scientist aspiring to be a future grantee, or an educator encouraging students to take a closer look at our evolutionary past, you play a vital role in the continuation of our mission. Our members enable us to provide speaker series, learning expeditions, research grants, and fellowships that help students in a developing countries obtain advanced degrees.
For over 40 years, Foundation members have enjoyed a front row seat to the unfolding story of our human origins. The membership is now a diverse group of science patrons of all ages and many different nationalities. 80% of our annual budget is granted to scientists and used for our educational programs to fuel our understanding of how we developed as humans. Last year, we were able to give away $762,000 in grants, but we can’t do it without your support.
