Capitol Cause Fund

Politicians are bombarded with information from individuals and groups advocating for each of their specific, vested interests. As geophysicists, our challenge is to deliver unbiased, sound scientific advice that cuts through confusing data flooding congressional offices. The best way to do this is through face-to-face meetings with policymakers and testimonies before House and Senate Committees. However, many AGU members don’t have the means for effective participation.

One easy way to take action is by donating to the Capitol Cause Fund which helps support visits to Congress and special orientations.

Please support the cause by making a gift below.

If you would like to make a gift by personal check, please make it payable to the American Geophysical Union – note “Capitol Cause Fund” in the memo area.

Mail your payment to:
ATTN Development Department
American Geophysical Union
2000 Florida Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20009
