Donation Campaign for Artifact Conservation

Dear BHFS Friends,

During the 2017 excavation season, many artifacts were found at our projects in Bona Mansio and Varna.While these finds will eventually end up in our partner museums - The Archaeological Museum "Prof. M Domardzki" in Septemvri and the Museum of History in Varna - they need preventive conservation treatment before doing so. The costs for these treatments have been partially covered by the Balkan Heritage Foundation and the museums themselves. However, in order to complete the work, there is a need for an additional 1120 EUR (approximately 1380 USD).

Please help the museums by contributing to the conservation effort. Below you will find images and descriptions of finds needing conservation. Adopt an artifact or a collection and make their preservation, publication and exhibition possible.

To make a donation online, please go to https://www.bhfieldschool.org/support and select the Balkan Heritage Fund as the designation **. If you want to support a particular artifact or group of artifacts, please donate online and send an email to [email protected] with the artifact / s number. The names of our donors will be published on our website next to each artifact (unless you prefer to remain anonymous).

As a non-profit organization, the Balkan Heritage Foundation relies on donors like you to help us in our mission to support the protection, management and promotion of cultural heritage in SE Europe.   

Your contribution is vital to the success of our initiative! Give today! Every contribution counts!      

** For donors in the US who want to make a tax deductible donation, please contact us first so we can route your donation through our US partner.
