The Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology is a non-profit public charity. Thus, it 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, that you can find (here(hyperlink), 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 we can continue expanding our services! All donations are tax-deductible.
