The Friends of Florissant Fossil Beds supports many of the park's programs and projects through financial donations. They also help with some staffing, since 1997 they have generously sponsored 30 GeoCorps interns in the park.
Their primary mission is to raise funds and provide assistance to projects that preserve the fossils of Florissant, as well as to organize and promote programs and activities that support the Monument's educational, conservation, and scientific research objectives.
The Friends of Florissant Fossil Beds welcome and greatly appreciate donations, which can be made by mail to the address below or in person when visiting the Monument. T-shirts, mugs, and other items are available at the visitor center for donations of various amounts. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
