There are various ways you can help donate to mindat.org.
The most important is to donate knowledge. If you're an expert in the mineralogy of a particular area then we'd be delighted to have your contributions of information. Even if you don't regard yourself as an expert, we would love to see your mineral photographs uploaded here (remember, they remain your copyright so you're not really donating them).
We would also love to have old books, periodicals, old labels, mineral-related postage stamps, share certificates, photographic prints, all sorts of things like this can be used to help grow our database of information that's freely available to everyone interested in minerals around the world. - Click here if you'd like to send us something
If you'd like to make a more substantial cash donation to mindat.org, then please contact me. Your donations help us to improve the site, giving us more time to add the neat features you want to see. And those making significant donations can help decide what the money is used for (something new you'd like to see? perhaps we can write it for you!).
