The Society for Ethnobotany

Fostering research and education on the past, present, and future uses of plants by people.

Corporate Donations

SEB LogoFor over sixty years, The Society for Economic Botany has stood as the premiere international organization supporting the creation and sharing of knowledge on the vibrant, diverse uses of plants by people. Food, medicine, clothing, fuels, even musical instruments and housing materials are all the subjects of our work.

Without our Society fueling generations of groundbreaking research in these subjects, it is likely that our world would be even less prepared for the challenges we face in the future. Now, we need your support to keep that work going.

The Society for Economic Botany can only achieve our goals with the help of generous donations from supporters and community members. With their support, we’ve been able to foster research that ultimately increases global biodiversity, protects our environment, preserves indigenous knowledge, and discovers new uses for plant-based products.

We are asking for your help so that we can continue this work while modernizing, diversifying, and opening the Society for maximum impact and international collaboration through additional scholarships, conference awards, and grants. Would you be willing to donate to help us reach our goals?

If you are interested in partnering with the Society and have ideas you would like to discuss, please contact me via my information below. Or, if you prefer to contribute directly, please visit our online donation form at Every donation makes a difference and takes us one step closer to building a better world!

Thank you in advance for your support!
