Help us Create a Bright Future for Archaeology!

For 137 years, we at the AIA have worked to support archaeological research, fieldwork, preservation and education. But these days, more than ever, we need your help so that the past is not lost forever. Your support helps to save endangered archaeological sites and artifacts all over the world, fosters scholarly research, nurtures public interest through the AIA lecture program and publications, and helps us tell the policy makers in Washington that the world’s cultural heritage is worth saving.

AIA Fund

Why should you give to the AIA Fund?  Because….

A tax-deductible gift to the AIA Fund means you directly help:

  • Publish the latest archaeological research
  • Preserve threatened archaeological sites for the future
  • Fund scholarships to educate the next generation of archaeologists
  • Teach children to appreciate other cultures through the study of the world's archaeological heritage

And now giving to the AIA Fund is even easier through our automatic giving program!  Not only will you help cut down our administrative costs for sending out mailings, you will have the added convenience of knowing you have helped to continue all the programs you support at the AIA, just with the click of a button!

As you may know, only a small percentage of our Membership fees covering our operating funds, so your support is crucial. If you have not yet supported the AIA Fund, start now! And if you already have, please consider an additional gift to help us get through these difficult economic times and continue making progress.

If you are looking for a different way to support the AIA Fund, consider rolling over a contribution from your IRA, making a gift of stock, or listing the AIA as a beneficiary on your retirement fund. 

To contribute to the AIA Fund, please send your check, payable to The Archaeological Institute of America and designated for the AIA Fund, to Archaeological Institute of America, 656 Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02215-2006 or call 877-524-6300 (toll free) or 617-353-8709, fax 617-353-6550, or email Jennifer Klahn.
