Show your support of SSA and the Society's programs by contributing to the fund(s) of your choice.

The Seismological Society of America is a non-profit organization that depends in part, on the generosity of the seismological community. Your contributions further the mission of each SSA fund and we greatly appreciate your support of the Society.

Kanamori Fund

The purpose of this fund is to support the professional development of students, seismologists and earthquake engineers. In past years, it has been used to provide a travel grant to attend the SSA meeting from countries that are members of the European Seismological Commission (ESC) under a reciprocal agreement.

Student Travel Grant Fund

This fund supports modest travel grants to help students attend the SSA Annual Meeting. The larger the fund, the more grants we can give to students. The Student Travel Grant fund is a significant part of increasing student participation in SSA meetings and activities.

Joyner Fund

The William B. Joyner Memorial Fund was established to promote education and to improve the use of seismology in earthquake engineering. The fund honors Bill Joyner, a longtime SSA member, who died in 2001. In his distinguished career with the U.S. Geological Survey, Bill was particularly effective at bridging the gap between seismologists and engineers. More information is available on the Joyner Lecture pages. SSA, in cooperation with EERI, established the William B. Joyner Memorial Fund Lectures to be given at the Annual Meeting of each group.

SSA General Fund

Donations to this fund support SSA's new and ongoing programs including publishing, meetings, government relations and communications. Your contributions to the SSA General fund help SSA to continue providing important member services.

SSA Annual Meeting Sponsorhip

Sponsorship of the Annual Meeting is also available. SSA invites corporations and organizations to sponsor events at the SSA Annual Meeting each spring. It is through the valuable financial support and participation of sponsors that SSA is able to provide an excellent and dynamic meeting each year.

All contributions to the Seismological Society of America (SSA) are tax-deductible in the U.S.
