Online Donations

To make it easier to support the Allegheny Valley Project, we've installed a "Donate" button in the upper right side of the page. The button provides a secure transaction environment powered by PayPal, and you can use most major credit cards or a PayPal account. Your donations help us purchase supplies for archaeological activities, pay for research expenses such as radiocarbon dating, and pay for overhead costs involved in day-to-day operations. If your donation is $15 or more, you will be counted as a Supporting Member. Donations of $50 or more will receive an electronic receipt to print out for tax purposes. We welcome business sponsors as well. Email us at with any questions, comments or directions concerning your donation (if you want to fund a particular activity, for example). Ask to be put on our email and/or paper mailing list to receive the AVP newsletter. To all of our current and future Supporting Members: your support is greatly appreciated! Remember, the AVP is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, so your donation is tax deductible.
