AGU AS Section Open Letter

AGU has recently instituted a new member giving incentive program which could provide up to $5,000 in unrestricted funding to our Section/Focus Group

Dear AGU Atmospheric Science Colleagues:

I am pleased to inform you that AGU has recently instituted a new member giving

incentive program that could provide our Section/Focus Group with up to $5,000 in

unrestricted funding. The program payouts are based on the rate of participation of

members (excluding students) primarily affiliated with our Section/Focus Group. If

we have 5% of our primarily affiliated members make a contribution of $50 or

greater, AGU will provide us with $1,000 in unrestricted funding. We will get $2,000

for a 7% rate of participation, $3,000 for a 10% rate, $4,000 for a 12% rate, and

$5,000 for a 15% rate. Only members who make contributions of $50 or greater will

count. Contributions can be made to ANY AGU FUND.

Your financial contribution to AGU will demonstrate your commitment to the Earth

and space sciences while potentially generating additional revenue for our

Section/Focus Group. The unrestricted funds can be used by the Atmosphere Section

for student travel support, section awards, meetings, workshops, etc.

Please strongly consider this request as we set our sights on a 15% rate of

participation!

Sincerely,

William Lau

President, AGU Atmosphere Section
