FUNDRAISING PROGRAMS AND DONOR OPPORTUNITIES



WHY THE JEPSON HERBARIUM NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
Although housed on the UC Berkeley campus, the Jepson Herbarium is privately supported through grants and donations. While the Curator's position and some research is supported with revenue from endowments of the Jepson Herbarium, almost all of the funding for the Jepson Flora Project is provided by government grants, foundation grants, and gifts from individual donors. The Friends of the Jepson Herbarium have played a vital role in the on-going operation of the Jepson Flora Project.

THE SECOND EDITION OF THE JEPSON MANUAL — SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
A five-year fundraising goal for the Jepson Flora Project has been set at 2.5 million dollars. A portion of the needed funding will be sought from foundations and government organizations but the Herbarium will rely heavily on private supporters. The Herbarium has established a new sponsorship program to encourage participation in the campaign for the Second Edition of The Jepson Manual. Gifts may be made as one-time payments or as a pledge, payable over 5 years.

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES are exclusive and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. With approval from the donor, gifts at the $1,000 level and above will be acknowledged in the front pages of The Jepson Manual.
