Every Gift Matters

This is your chance to say that you helped send a paleontology team from KU to Montana to collect a Tyrannosaurus rex — and bring it home to the KU Natural History Museum.

$25

Brush the Dirt Aside

Did you know that Barnum Brown, the paleontologist credited with discovering a T. rex in the Hell Creek formation in the 1800s, was a KU alumnus? Help send a team of KU scientists and students to follow in his footsteps.

$100

Bring a Chisel

Paleontology is often putting together the pieces of a puzzle. Help us chip away at this puzzle and bring home more of this amazing fossil.

$250

Make a Plaster Jacket

Imagine being a KU student who gets to go to Montana to bring back parts of a T. rex. Your gift will give students a field experience of excavating and preparing fossil material that they won’t forget.

$500

Dig into the Fossil Layer

This year, we will hire a backhoe operator to remove more of top of the hill at our dig site, down to the fossil layer. Help us dig deeper and bring the T. rex fossil back to KU.
