How to Support the Geology and Geophysics Department at the University of Utah


As the Geology and Geophysics Department has grown in stature and numbers, we have benefited from contributions made by our network of alumni, families, and friends. These contributions support a wide variety of teaching, research, and service activities, and are particularly important in providing academic and professional development opportunities for Geology & Geophysics students.

Donations made to the Geology & Geophysics Department at the University of Utah are tax deductible, to the extent permitted by law. Please check with your tax preparer to assess how your donations may be deducted.

How can I make a donation?

Gifts from our alumni and friends enable us to do the amazing things you read about in this newsletter. Thank you so much to all who contribute to support our students, faculty and staff.
