Giving To SEEDS

Currently, our fundraising goal for the SEEDS program is to fully establish the Henry L. Gholz SEEDS Field Trip Endowment. The endowment was created in 2017 in honor of Dr. Henry Gholz.  Interest and dividend income derived from the endowment will provide support for SEEDS National Field Trips for 20 students a year. Field trips are a vital way to introduce underrepresented minority students to the range of ecosystems across American and to enhance students’ interests in ecological research ideas and methods.

Our target is to raise $400,000 by 2024. As of December 2020, we have received more than  $153,000. Every donation counts.

Your contributions allow SEEDS to decrease our dependence on external funding and to inspire a new generation of leaders in ecology from across the diversity of cultural and ethnic groups in our society. When you make a contribution to SEEDS, you set in place an independent fund that enables underrepresented and minority students to discover new and big ideas in research, a passion for science, and the wide range of possible careers in ecological fields.
