Tribute Gifts

Gifts made through any method and to any of AGU’s Funds and efforts can be designated in honor or memory of a loved one or colleague in celebration of a milestone event, such as a holiday, birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement or other special occasion.

As a donor, your support of AGU impact our programming at an important time. As we prepare to mark our centennial in 2019, we are celebrating scientific achievement – and preparing for the next century. Your support helps AGU to:

  • Build the next generation of scientists who will solve some of the most urgent problems of our time.
  • Link communities with scientists who will help them carry out projects around local concerns, such as preparing for changes in climate.
  • Help scientists to become expert communicators, who can make a compelling case for funding scientific research in the global public square.
  • Promote best practices to address harassment and foster diversity in the lab and the field.
  • Bring the latest science to the public, media, and policymakers through and 20 high quality, peer-reviewed journals.
