The Sierra College Natural History Museum is a program fund of the Sierra College Foundation. Our Museum is grateful for the continued altruism and advocacy that has been exhibited to us by our constituency, both individual and corporate.

Such financial sponsorship and support underwrite daily museum operations from exhibit fabrication and ongoing collections maintenance and refurbishment to educational programs and special events that are critical to our success as an important community educational resource.

There are many different avenues to support the Museum, including:

  • financial donations 
  • specimen donation and collections enhancement
  • membership
  • sponsorship
  • volunteerism
