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 include (but are not limited to) Brunton transit compasses, petrographic microscopes, and GPS units. Your donations also allow us to provide students with scholarships as well as 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.

Please visit Giving to SJSU - How to Give to donate online, by mail, or by phone. 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.
