FOR PALEONTOLOGY, SCIENCE AND EDUCATION
A 501(c)(3) foundation
WHAT WE DO
The Lauer Foundation for Paleontology, Science and Education (PSE) acquires, curates and provides permanent access to the Foundation’s collections of scientifically important paleontological specimens. These collections are made available to the international scientific community for the purposes of scientific research, publication and exhibition opportunities.
The Lauer Foundation PSE also utilizes the collections to provide unique educational outreach opportunities to area schools, museums and the community for customized hands-on programs in geology and paleontology. Lastly, the Foundation continues to provide a long-standing cultural awareness program based upon experiences in Africa for multicultural diversity day programs, complimenting existing school curriculums while advancing knowledge and sparking curiosity.
The Lauer Foundation for Paleontology, Science and Education is an independent operating foundation, governed by a corporate Board of Directors. The Foundation is registered as a 501 (c)(3) not for profit organization with the U.S. Government and the State of Illinois. The Lauer Foundation PSE, and not any individual, owns all specimens. The Lauer Foundation PSE collections will be deposited to a museum or public depository, of the Board of Directors choice, to ensure continued permanent access to the Foundation collections by the scientific community.
