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
President, AGU Atmosphere Section
