Digital Products Fund

Students at your favorite university need a name they can look up to. May we suggest yours?

Through your establishment of a long-term commitment fund to the AAPG Foundation Digital Products Fund - University Subscriptions, students and faculty at your designated university can directly benefit from four generations of geoscientists' scientific experiences and achievements.

The Digital Products Fund- University Subscriptions is a special segment of the AAPG Foundation Digital Products Fund which provides a way for donors to give a gift to the university of their choice. The Foundation will pay the Digital Products University subscription fee each year so students and faculty will have uninterrupted access to the entire AAPG Digital Library—over a million pages of international, national and regional libraries of petroleum, geology and geophysics information.

A one-time gift of $15,000 will establish a subscription in the name of your designated university and at the same time honor the donor, an esteemed colleague, a family member, a great teacher or someone of his or her choosing. The name of the honoree and/or the donor can be prominently mentioned on the university's access page. A certificate will be sent to the university for display.
