Support the Chico State Herbarium!

Please help us seize on a wonderful opportunity and raise much-needed funds for the Chico State Herbarium—one of the largest regional herbarium in the West.

A generous donor has pledged $20,000 match to increase the Chico State Herbarium endowment fund. You may have already received a letter in the mail, but we are only one week away (June 30, 2019) from the deadline to raise the funds for the match.

Why support? The Herbarium’s archives help us study regional plants, identify rare species, and recover genetic information. It is a critical resource as our changing climate rapidly reshapes local ecosystems.

How will your donation be used? Help us continue to build an endowment to provide stable support for the Herbarium in perpetuity.

Make your gift go twice as far—help us before June 30th! Giving a gift in any amount will make double the difference. You can make a tax-deductible gift online today, just click “Donate” below!


Your donation will help us build an endowment to provide stable support for the herbarium curator position, which oversees operations and the expansion of our collection.
