The Leakey Foundation launched a fundraising campaign in honor of Louis Leakey’s 116th birthday on August 7, 2019. All donations up to $5,000 were quadruple-matched thanks to Leakey Foundation Fellow Mike Smith and two anonymous supporters.

We are thrilled to report that thanks to your generous donations we have raised a total of $29,552 for research and educational outreach!

If you haven’t yet donated but would still like to support Louis Leakey’s legacy of funding multidisciplinary human origins research and outreach, it’s not too late! All gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar, so your impact will be doubled!
