Grants & Donations

DONATIONS TO THE INSTITUTE: The Institute actively solicits donations of analytical equipment, labeled specimens, thin sections and similar materials. The collector and scientific communities can support this effort simply by contacting us to make arrangements for gifts of such materials.

However, overhead costs for operating the website is supported largely by donations. While the Directors and Science Advisors serve the Institute without pay, financial support for overhead costs is always needed. See the donation pages on here:

As an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) organization, donations to the Institute, whether in materials or via financial support, are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law, and donations are gratefully acknowledged.

GRANTS BY THE INSTITUTE: If you are an educator requiring mineral or rock samples for your classroom work, the Institute may be able to provide samples to you at no cost, other than shipping charges. Requests for specimens must be made in writing on educational institution letterhead, first by email and followed by hardcopy, and requests must include the specifics of what is needed, how they will be used in the classroom, and any other supporting information that will enable the Institute to properly evaluate your request in an expeditious manner. Conatact us for further details as needed.
