GivingTuesday 2018 may be over, but there's still plenty of time to support science this holiday season!
GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that celebrates generosity, collaboration, and community on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 27th, 2018.
It’s a day to make a significant impact for the local organizations you believe in. For DRI, it’s one of the biggest days of the year for community members to come together and share their support of environmental research and the people behind the science, in Nevada and around the world.
How can you make a difference for DRI science on GivingTuesday?
Give: Please make a gift to support the DRI scientists working to improve the health and wellness of our communities and the natural systems we all depend on. Every dollar donated this year will go directly to the Innovation Research Program, which provides DRI faculty, students, and staff with the financial resources they need to pursue groundbreaking new projects.
Thanks in part to GivingTuesday donors in 2017, $257,000 was just awarded to eight teams of DRI researchers through the IRP. These scientists are now examining some of our most pressing environmental problems, like the efficiency of solar energy production and the impact of microplastics in freshwater ecosystems like Lake Tahoe. Please give now--your donation will have a tremendous impact on science in your community!
Share: Tell people! This is a movement, and the more people who know about GivingTuesday, the bigger impact we can make on the future of environmental science. If you give, let your friends and family know. If you can’t give, share the information with people you know who may not have heard about it yet to encourage them to give! Sharing this day with others is what will make it the most impactful.
Celebrate: Stay connected with us on social media while we share stories of local scientists conducting innovative new research projects thanks to the support of donors like you. Tag us in posts using @DRIscience and #DiscoverDRI and share why you believe in supporting science. We’ll be celebrating along with you and our community of supporters.
