Other Funding Options

Self-funded paid sequencing

  • You can pay for any quantity of sequences through FunDiS and receive the same quality and benefits as grant sequencing by using this link: Paid Sequencing Service
  • Paid sequencing prices will be honored for six months after purchase. Thereafter prices may be recalculated to reflect current market prices.

Funding from other sources

  • FunDiS is a 501(c)(3) organization and can accept donations to further its scientific and educational goals.
  • Ask your employer to make a matching grant (a donation to the non-profit FunDiS) to enhance your FunDiS grant.
  • Ask your park, reserve, land manager, or other area where you collect, or a foundation or non-profit which works in your area, to collaborate with your project and grant you sequencing funds. These funds come directly to FunDiS and are available for use by your project.


Under development

FunDiS is developing other ways that projects can use to secure funds for sequencing. 

  • Peer-to-Peer fundraising - A new FunDiS platform will assist projects in crowdsourcing contributions for your project’s sequencing from your club members, friends,  and other people who want to support documenting fungal biodiversity.
