Support Our Facilities
Please support the important activities of the Byrd Center. There are several funds described below to which you might make a contribution. To make an online donation, please click on the fund of interest below:
Our current ice storage freezers maintain the collection of ice cores recovered from glaciers around the world at –30ºF. These freezers have been in operation since 1989 and are currently at capacity. A recent feasibility study conducted by SHP Leading Design recommends renovation of the existing freezers as well as the phased addition of 4 freezers that will utilize more modern technologies and efficiencies. This will help OSU meet its sustainability goals while supporting world class research. Directed by Drs. Lonnie G. Thompson and Ellen Mosley-Thompson.
Supports education and outreach activities of the Polar Rock Repository. Directed by Dr. Anne Grunow.
Donations will support enhancement and preservation of the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center Archival Program Collection. Visit our Polar Archives website for more information.
Alternatively, donations can also be sent via check to the Byrd Center or the OSU Development Office. Please make checks payable to The Ohio State University.
