Become a Fellow

Become a Leakey Fellow and gain exclusive access to an exciting world of science and discovery.

Leakey Foundation Fellows are the premier patrons of science, an active, adventurous, and intellectually curious group of supporters who promote the science of human origins.

We have reserved a front-row seat for you! As a Leakey Foundation Fellow, you will receive invitations for exclusive programs and enjoy insider access to the world’s leading human origins researchers.

Upcoming online programs include the Annual Fellows Lecture on April 24 with Dr. Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum of London, and our monthly virtual “Salon Series.” These online invitation-only events give you an opportunity to learn directly from Leakey Foundation researchers in a fun, social setting online.

When our travel programs resume, you will have the opportunity for exclusive travel to meet the scientists who help shape our understanding of human origins. Take behind the scenes tours at world-class museums or dine with top scientists at our Annual Fellows Dinner. Enjoy all of these benefits while making a tremendous impact on science!

You can become a Fellow by supporting our mission with a one-time donation of $1,000 or with a monthly gift of $84 or more. All donations will be matched by the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.

Yes! I want to become a Leakey Foundation Fellow
