SEEDS Field Trip Endowment

ESA received a $100,000 pledge to match gifts to the Henry L. Gholz National SEEDS Field Trip Endowment

Long-time ESA member and donor, Phillip Taylor, has pledged ESA’s largest gift from an individual to lead us over the top of our target goal and fund the SEEDS national field trips into perpetuity.

“SEEDS is illuminating what is exciting for our field – intellectually – and …how that excitement can be paired with values you have… that can frame your life in terms of career opportunities or how you share your understanding with your communities.”
