Five Reasons to Give to SSA

You don’t want the pandemic to slow our scientific progress.

  • Your gift to the SSA General Fund helps our members exchange the latest seismic information–even when travel isn’t possible.

You want to help promising scientists and engineers succeed.

  • Your gift to the Kanamori Fund supports the professional development of scientists and engineers at every stage of their careers. Recent opportunities made possible through the fund include Virtual Trainings on how to speak up for colleagues and create more inclusive workplaces, and the SSA Connects mentoring program, which provides student and early-career members with job-related advice from veteran seismologists. Your support helps our community continue to advance their careers–and our science–together.

You want U.S. policymakers to make informed decisions about seismology.

  • Your gift to SSA’s Geo-CVD Travel Fund sends students to attend the annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (Geo-CVD) in Washington, D.C., where they forge critically important connections with policymakers and learn how to make the case for seismology.
  • Your gift to the SSA General Fund directly supports the Society’s education and outreach efforts on Capitol Hill.

You want to foster the connection between seismologists and engineers.

  • Giving to the Joyner Fund, which makes both the annual Joyner Lecture Series and Charles F. Richter Early Career Award possible, helps highlight the ways that scientists and engineers are working together and sharing information to advance our science and protect public safety. By supporting the fund you can help educate our community, honor outstanding work and inspire new accomplishments at the interface of earthquake science and engineering.

You want to help our members meet again.

  • Gifts to the Student Travel Fund have always helped members overcome obstacles to attending our scientific conferences. Today your gift can provide a light at the end of the tunnel of a global pandemic, ensuring that our students can attend the virtual conference and travel again as soon as our in-person conferences resume.
