Become a Friend of SECAR

Due to its unequalled economic activity during the colonial period, St. Eustatius has now been transformed into one of the richest archaeological islands in the Caribbean. Statia offers the unique possibility, by means of archaeological research, to study a territory from the colonial period through all aspects of human activity. To make historical research permanently possible, governmental support alone is insufficient. For this reason the organization “Friends of SECAR” has been created under the SECAR foundation. The aim of this organization is to garner financial support in order to make further excavation and restoration feasible.  Moreover, the organization would like to further stimulate the international and national interdisciplinary archaeological research conducted through SECAR.

“Friends of SECAR” does want to only approach companies and financial institutions, but welcomes individuals as well. Through a small donation anyone can become a member of Friends of SECAR. Annually supporting members  receive a richly illustrated newsletter that includes the results of the research conducted each excavation season on St. Eustatius. Those who wish to become a Friend of SECAR may transfer contributions to following account:
