Donate to AGU Biogeosciences and help us maintain and increase our activities!

AGU23 will be here before you know it! As you prepare to register for the Meeting, please consider donating to the Biogeosciences Section. Donations support a wide range of activities, including travel and caregiver awards, which help increase diversity, equity and inclusion at AGU23, as well as OSPA awards to honor student presenters, early career workshops, networking activities and more!

A contribution of $50 or more qualifies you to be an individual donor, which qualifies you for an incentive program that helps increase funds available for each section. More specifically, starting at 5% participation from primary affiliated Biogeosciences members, AGU will give our section additional funds for section-based activities. The greater the participation, the greater the contribution from AGU to our section. Please note that donations to AGU Biogeosciences is separate from meeting registration. You can access the web site to donate here.

Thank you everyone for your support!
