Start an Earthwatch Expedition Fund for yourself or someone you care about to fundraise for scientific research and travel opportunities around the globe.
Are you interested in going on an Earthwatch Expedition, but need to save up first? Do you want to help a loved one dig up some funds to plan a future volunteer experience? Set up an Earthwatch Expedition Fund to raise contributions for yourself or someone else.
To set up an online fund, start with an initial contribution of just $25. Then, friends and family members can begin making donations toward this life-changing gift from a personal webpage created just for you.
Plus, Earthwatch Expedition Fund donations are U.S. tax deductible, so generous gifts make sense to the gift-giver, as well as the recipient.
Thank you for your interest in our mission and for getting involved. We look forward to helping you get into the field!
THINGS FUNDRAISERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT EXPEDITION FUNDS
From the time a donation is made, fundraisers have three years after the December 31st of the current year to apply those funds to an Earthwatch Expedition. After that, the funds become a general donation toward Earthwatch and cannot be refunded.
Expedition Fund donations can only be used for Earthwatch Expeditions, and not for transportation costs or other Earthwatch products, services, or events.
Earthwatch Expedition Fund totals online reflect only donations made online. It does not include donations made by mail or phone, or refunds or credits to expeditions that may have been added to Expedition Funds by Earthwatch.
