Giving to Earth and Environmental Sciences

Gifts to the Discretionary Fund of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences will help support departmental teaching initiatives, undergraduate teaching and research activities, field-study work for our students, educational and public outreach activities of the Weston Observatory, and faculty and graduate research.

Gifts can be made to the general discretionary fund and to one of our named funds. Among these are, the Rev. James W. Skehan, S.J. Endowment Fund (for faculty research ); the Rev. Daniel Linehan, S.J. Fund (for graduate research and travel); the David Roy Fund (for teaching initiatives); the Rev. James W. Skehan, S.J. Graduate Research Awards (for graduate students working on their theses); the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences Fund (covering a range of teaching and research activities), and the Weston Observatory Fund (for research and public outreach).

You may also establish your own named fund for current use or for endowment.
