SSP is celebrating Giving Tuesday this year on December 1, 2015 to secure support for our mission: to promote the understanding and appreciation of science and the vital role it plays in human advancement. #GivingTuesday was created in 2012 by 92nd Street Y, a cultural center in New York City. The international day of giving encourages philanthropy on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
Join the Society and support science as we celebrate our accomplishments in 2015 with a donation of $20.15 (or more!) for #GivingTuesday.
We rely on your support to deliver award-winning journalism through our Science News family of publications and to continue to build the impact of our renowned competitions and educational programs. Over the course of this exciting year, the Society:
