Support us / Donation

We would be delight­ed if you would sup­port our char­i­ta­ble goals. Dona­tions in kind and your coop­er­a­tion are just as wel­come as mon­e­tary donations.

What to donate?

We take over old min­er­als, fos­sils and rock col­lec­tions. We try to inte­grate the mate­r­i­al into the Lithothek. Mate­r­i­al that does not fit into the Lithothek is giv­en to friend­ly muse­ums or sold for the pur­pose of financ­ing. It is our con­cern to pre­serve the name of the donor and his col­lect­ing activity.

An often dis­cussed top­ic: “What hap­pens to my col­lec­tion after death” we may be able to answer for you. You can also help to inte­grate your col­lec­tion dur­ing your life­time and help us to prop­er­ly cat­a­log your donat­ed exhibits.

Mon­e­tary dona­tions are very wel­come. These make it eas­i­er for us to pur­sue shared goals and secure the projects for the future. It would be great if our projects would be worth it to you to con­tribute a few euros. This can be done via Pay­pal with cred­it card, and Pay­pal itself. You are also wel­come to send us a dona­tion direct­ly. We will glad­ly pro­vide you with the account details. Since we are a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion, you can deduct your dona­tion from your taxes.
