A note from Roberta Johnson at our sister organization NESTA (National Earth Science Teachers Association):
As you know, there is a crisis in Earth and Space Science education today in the US. NESTA is working hard to provide support for Earth and Space Science teachers across the country through our programs, communications, resources, and website, as well as through advocacy for Earth and Space Science education at the national level collaboration with partner organizations. Through these activities, we reach thousands of teachers across the country annually, and through them, hundreds of thousands of students.
As we approach the end of the year, we would like to encourage you to consider a donation to NESTA to help support our programs. As a non-profit and volunteer run 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, we work hard to keep our costs down, and avoid increases in membership fees - particularly in these difficult economic times. Please visit our donation campaign web page at http://www.nestanet.org/cms/content/support/donate, where we offer information about our need for financial support, and specific activities you might be interesting in supporting. Alternatively, you can go straight to our online donations form at http://www.nestanet.org/cms/content/support/donate/form to make your donation. If you would rather do this using a form that you can fill out and mail, you can find that form (and the mailing address for the form) at http://www.nestanet.org/cms/sites/default/files/documents/donation_form.pdf.
NESTA is excited to announce that the American Geophysical Union has agreed to match up to the first $10,000 of donations raised in this fund-raising campaign. This is a great way to double the impact of your donation! Your donation will go straight to NESTA, and will be used as you designate with your donation.
Thank you for your consideration!
