Giving

Donate to Earth Science

You can give to the department and specify how you would like your funds used, or allow the department to use your gift where needed most. Many employers provide matching contributions -- some up to a three-to-one match! Please check with your employer if you are unsure.

Your generosity will ensure a robust future for undergraduate and graduate student in Earth Science.

Gifts of $1,000 or more will qualify you as a member of the Chancellor's Council, even if a portion of that gift was a match by your employer.

Our key priorities include:

  • Unrestricted support (Where Most Needed)
  • Graduate support
  • Undergraduate support
  • General Field Instruction

Donations are tax deductible. You can also pledge via email to André Wyss, our Department Chair, who will personally follow up on your request.

Many other giving opportunities also exist, such as planned gift arrangements that could be beneficial to both you and the Department. André Wyss would be happy to discuss such possibilities with you at your convenience: (805) 893-7858 or (805) 895-4708.
