8. What’s a Minimum Contribution?
As you explore the wide range of volunteer opportunities detailed on Earthwatch.org, you’ll notice a Minimum Contribution listed for each expedition. This tax-deductible donation is needed to help support each expedition’s field research requirements, including your room and board, on-site transportation and field equipment expenses. However, additional contributions are urgently needed for scientific equipment, educational outreach, and community-building projects. Every dollar contributed above the Minimum Contribution will go directly towards keeping these vital programs going for as long as needed to protect the ecological and cultural resources that sustain our lives. As you prepare to join us in the field, please consider contributing as much as you’re able. It’s just one more way in which you can quickly and effectively change the world, one community or species at a time.
