The Loren Eiseley Leadership Giving Society (LES) was created to honor the memory of Eiseley–long-time University of Pennsylvania Museum anthropologist, essayist, and poet–by helping to further his ideals and sustain the Museum he cherished. Members of the Society contribute at least $1,500 annually to the Museum in unrestricted support, the most vital type of funding, since it is available where most needed at any time.
As an LES member, you will not only be making a tremendous difference to one of the world's foremost museums of archaeology and anthropology, but you will also help advance Loren Eiseley's extraordinary vision for generations to come.
"Forward and backward I have gone, and for me it has been an immense journey."
–Loren Eiseley, The Immense Journey
