American Friends:

Tax deductible donations in support of our work at Hierakonpolis/Nekhen are now being processed through the University of Oxford’s North American Office.

The standard donation is $25 per year, but examples of what your generous support will permit us to do are given below. Considering our discoveries and achievements to date, it is tremendous value for money!

$50 allows us to employ a highly skilled local workman for one week

$100 allows us to cover the cost of a site guard for one month.

$500 allows us to excavate with 10 workmen for one week and make even more amazing discoveries

$1000 allows us to run a battery of scientific tests on our remarkably well-preserved organic materials.
