The Specimen Museum is a certified charity through the PayPal Giving Fund. Thank you so much for your generosity!
All donations are 100% tax-deductible. You will receive a receipt. All donations go directly into our two social outreach programs, the Mobile Museum and Specimen Restoration programs, to directly affect change and teach our community about science at a personal level. Donations are accepted via PayPal, all major credit and debit cards, or bank account. PayPal is completely secure and we do not see any of your information other than your name, email address, and the amount you donate.
Donate a specimen
Do you have something like taxidermy, an animal or bone you found, or another type of specimen that you’d like to donate? We’d love to hear about it! Please use this form to tell us as much about your specimen as possible. We only accept donations that have been reviewed. If it sounds like something we can accept, we will ask for photos in an email reply.
Our Mobile Museum and Specimen Restoration programs use all kinds of supplies, from owl pellets and picks to kraft paper and cleaning supplies. We have an Amazon wish list, where you can purchase items that we have a direct need for and have them shipped right to our office! If you’re already shopping on Amazon, try using Amazon Smile to support the Specimen Museum. Half a percent of every purchase you make will be donated to our programming!
If you have something else you think we can use, use this form to let us know! Your donations help our programs run smoothly.
