Gift the Joy of Your First Field Experience. Take the $25,000 Match Challenge!

The Ecological Society of America  is proud to celebrate 25 years in our efforts to introduce and support underrepresented students in ecology. Over the years, the field trip has become the cornerstone of the SEEDS program where diverse students experience field research for the first time in an ecosystem that they might never have discovered.  Thanks to yet another amazing gift from Ms. Vicki Moore, the SEEDS program is steadily moving closer to our goal for the Henry L. Gholz National SEEDS Field Trip endowment.  Take the Challenge and double your gift!

The SEEDS Endowment

Currently, our fundraising goal for the SEEDS program is to fully establish the Henry L. Gholz SEEDS Field Trip Endowment, created in honor of Dr. Henry Gholz. Our target is to raise $400,000 by 2024. As of March 2021, we have received more than  $144,000 in principal. Every donation counts.

Your contributions allow SEEDS to decrease our dependence on external funding. When you make a contribution to the Henry L. Gholz SEEDS Field Trip endowment, you help secure 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.
