Please help sustain this successful program.

You can make a difference by actively supporting research focused on creating lifesaving medicines for use in the fight against pediatric and breast cancers, microbial infections, and other debilitating diseases.

This research cannot continue without new soil samples from citizen scientists. You can ensure this happens by helping cover the costs of sending collection kits to schools, scout troops, families, and community organizations. Your generous donations are what make it possible for us to continue sending collection kits out across the nation. Your financial support will be used to directly support the cost of kit materials and shipping. Every donations helps to provide important hands-on experiences for children and families to learn about the value of soil and microorganisms. Your funds help to ensure that everyone can get involved and experience first-hand the scientific discovery process!

Every dollar counts. A donation of as little as $6 will help sponsor the cost of one soil collection kit and shipping. A donation of $180 will provide collection materials for an entire school classroom. All donations go directly to supporting program costs.

We thank you for your interest in sponsoring this program. Your support will go a long way to making sure that we can continue this worthwhile public research initiative.
