Contributions to the Department


Duncan Hall ExteriorIn recent years, when our equipment budget has been meager, contributions have enabled us to purchase supplies and to replace obsolete equipment. Right now, our needs range from hand lenses and disk drives to Brunton transits and petrographic microscopes. Your donations also allow us to provide students with scholarships, and to help defray the cost of travel, thesis research, and field camp. We greatly appreciate contributions of all sizes and thank you for the support given to our programs.

For information on how to donate online, by mail, or by phone, please visit the SJSU Acceleration Campaign's giving page.  If using the web form, please be sure to specify "Geology Department" and the Fund Name (see below) in the box marked "Other."  If donating by check, please be sure to include that information on the memo line.
