The Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology is not supported by the state or a University. Instead, the WFVZ relies on charitable donations and gifts from individuals and foundations, and grants and contracts for specific research projects. We also have a membership program, through which individuals and families can partner with us. If you like the Foundation's mission, programs, and beautiful facility, we hope you will consider making a donation so that we can continue expanding our services! All donations are tax-deductible.
If you would like to donate to the WFVZ, please contact us! We have opportunities for Membership, Planned Giving, and other creative ways to contribute!
