Support the BBPI

We believe that science has the power to inspire the global community.  We also believe that science and education are both fundamentally and equally critical to reveal the universe's fundamental truths and address and solve the world’s most pressing problems.  

There are many ways you can partner with the BBPI to help us create innovative research and engaging educational opportunities.       No matter the size, your gifts and donations help us to inspire life-long learners across the country.

The BBPI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which makes your donations tax deductible. Your contributions help us accomplish our mission: to study the paleontological treasures of the Bighorn Basin, and to inspire and educate people of all ages.   There are many donation levels and thank you gifts to choose from!  We need your help donate today!



BBPI Members receive exclusive offers, benefits, and access to our exciting research, education, and outreach.  Most importantly, though, BBPI Members provide the much-needed resources that make everything we do possible.  Help us inspire the next generation of scientists today!

Employer-Matched Giving

Thousands of companies across the United States match their employee's (and their spouse/partner's) financial gifts to charitable organizations.  These programs may double or even triple the impact of your donation to the BBPI.

  1. Contact your HR department to find out if your employer matches charitable gifts.  
  2. Request and complete a matching gift form from your employer.  If your employer does not have a form, use the one provided HERE.
  3. Mail or email the form to the BBPI with your gift.

The BBPI will verify the completed form, return it to your employer, and a matching gift contribution will be issued to the BBPI.



The BBPI has many opportunities for corporate or individual sponsorships. Whether you or your organization are interested in sponsoring a single program or underwriting an entire field expedition, the support of like-minded organizations is critical to our success.
