Your help is needed -- Now!
Archaeology is exciting, but expensive. Whether its
under the shadow of the Pyramids, in a Utah desert or yes, on the bottom of an ocean,
archaeological discovery takes a lot of time and people. Underwater archaeology is almost
always much more expensive than land digging. It must have new technologies and equipment
to do the same job.
Underwater archaeology is as equipment-intensive as its
land-based cousin is labor-intensive. The barest of needs include boats, SCUBA gear,
buoys, emergency personnel and people with a great deal of nautical knowledge.
The Denbigh Project is one of several run by the Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA), but must
find its own funding and resources.
The Denbigh Project does not receive public
funding, and is entirely supported by generous gifts from excited individuals like you as
well as corporations and foundations. The Denbigh Project has also received
substantial donated support such as services and equipment from many interested companies

Companies with Matching Gift Programs
Many companies provide "matching gift" programs
for their employees. When you, as an employee, make a donation to the Denbigh
Project, you can can notify the company, which will then make a donation of an equal (or
even double) amount to the project. Matching gift programs effectively double or triple
the value of the contributions made by individual employees.
The list below are companies known to have a matching gift
program. If you know of others, send us an email and
well include them.
Dont know if your company will double your gift? Ask
your company's Human Resources department or community relations person. Often the
matching gift program includes not only gifts made by active employees, but also retirees,
spouses and board members. Know someone who would be interested in giving? Clue them into
this web site!
