Support our Mission

“How does my donation support FMVA?”

Contributions to FMVA make a significant difference in the ongoing effort to promote education of minerals and their importance in society. Funding supports educational initiatives such as our directories, mineral publications, rock and mineral kits, and access to publications and resources we can provide teachers across the Commonwealth. Thank you for supporting the mission of FMVA! 

Material Donations – FMVA also accepts donations of material assets including books, mineral specimens, and other equipment and tools. You can choose whether this donation is for preservation (items cannot be sold) or if you are donating minerals for sale that can be auctioned or sold to help support nonprofit activities. All donors are responsible for their own appraisals. Please reach out to our team on the Contact Us page if you would like further information and details to begin this process. 

FMVA is a 501(c)3. Your donations are tax-deductible.
