This virtual museum is a production of CIWA,
a non-profit private foundation (IRC section 501(c)(3)), based in
Santa Barbara, California.
Developing this virtual museum is an expensive proposition. Your tax-deductible donation to our general fund, large or small,
would be most appreciated.
Sponsor an Item
Do you have a favorite item in the Virtual Museum? Why not become
a sponsor for that item’s web page with a donation of $200?
Unless you give us instructions to the contrary, we will display
your name on the page to encourage others to become sponsors.
Please include the item description (or even better, the catalog
number—it looks like WOD-XL-0567).
Unfortunately, we are not currently in a position to receive donations of artifacts.
How to Donate
Please let us know in whose name you would like to make the donation,
indicate the item catalog number in the case of a page sponsorship,
and send your check to:
Institute of World Archeology
PO BOX 42924
Santa Barbara, CA 93140
Would you like to be able to give by credit card? Let us know, as we are currently assessing the need for credit card support.

Tax Deductible Status
Monetary donations are tax-exempt to US tax payers, up to the usual
limit for private foundation donations (currently 30% of your adjusted
gross income). We will, of course, provide you with a donation receipt
for your tax purposes.
