Hippos Excavations is among the largest archaeological Classical period expeditions in Israel. The logistics of fieldwork, post-processing of finds, laboratory analysis and publication are financially demanding.
Individuals and organizations can contribute funds for research of our choice or for a specific project. The general contribution carries naming opportunities, for a piece of the site or for a scholarship fund. Specific projects for which funding can be provided are, for example, e
xcavation and conservation of a Byzantine church at the site, or publication of a book about current research from Hippos. 

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Dr. Michael Eisenberg for further information.

We thank you in advance for considering a contribution. Any sum will help us in expending the research.
