CICHAZ is a non-profit in the United States (CICHAZ USA) and Mexico (CICHAZ, A.C.) and relies on public funding or donations to implement its mission of Bringing
Science and Service Together. If you would like to support a particular activity, or the field station more generally, you can make a tax-deductible donation via PayPal (see
link below) or send CICHAZ USA a check. Any amount is greatly appreciated!!
Activities (current and envisioned) that need funding:
- Purchase of an adjacent 600 m2 of farmland on which to build greenhouse and laboratory facilities to avoid clearing any of our tropical hardwoods.
- Hiring of a full-time Science and Education coordinator
- Supporting Postdoctoral CICHAZ Fellows
- A Day of Science where we could offer films, poster challenges, workshops, activities, and more!
- Guided hikes are annually offered to the community - we would love to be able to host invited scientists to help
guide the hikes but that needs funding!
- STEM Summer Camps for local children
- After School Programming
- Property Maintenance
