Your generous donations to the Department of Geological Sciences support the unique Earth science educational experience provided at the University of Florida. Gifts to the Department may be directed to the Geology Department General Fund at the UF Foundation (be sure to enter 000799 for the fund code to direct the gift to Geological Sciences), or to the Geology Department 50th Anniversary Endowment (see below). If you are looking for a specific area to support, the Department is currently seeking funds to purchase modern geophysical equipment to establish a new field course in geophysics, and to renovate the undergraduate teaching lab used for introductory courses in Earth science. For more information about these initiatives or information about contributing to student scholarships and fellowships contact the Department Chair, David Foster.
