Thanks to Our Financial Supporters

Much of the work we do is only possible thanks to the contributions made by our donors. We raised nearly $170,000 from 514 individual donors in 2021, a large proportion of that going directly to the Henry L. Gholz SEEDS Field Trip Endowment in celebration of the 25th anniversary of our flagship diversity program. We also succeeded in a special matching campaign supported by our past presidents to ensure that our Opportunity Fund remains well-funded and able to support under-resourced scientists’ attendance at the the Annual Meeting.

Thank You to Our Donors
