How to Donate to the UNM Herbarium

Long term sustainability of museum research collections is a challenging facet of any herbarium. We invite those who are willing and able to donate to our two funding outlets. Below are links to our two active donation funds. Please contact Curator Hannah Marx hmarx@unm.edu with any questions. 


Friends of the UNM Herbarium Fund

This endowed fund is used to support the operations of the UNM Herbarium at the Museum of Southwestern Biology for purposes including, but limited, to augmenting herbarium research, education and maintenance, at the discretion of the Herbarium Curator. This fund is focused on long term growth and sustainability of the collections. 




Museum of Southwestern Biology Herbarium Division Fund

This fund supports the Museum of Southwestern Biology Herbarium Division by providing unique opportunities under the discretion of the Curator of the Herbarium Division to conduct field expeditions to obtain and curate new specimens, support students, and to meet strategic goals and unexpected needs of the division. This fund is focused on more immediate use of donations.
