Why I Give

“It is so satisfying for us to give to the Woods Hole Research Center because not only are we giving to a terribly important cause but we also feel that the modest amount we are able to give really makes a difference and is seriously appreciated by the Center.”

– Carol Swenson and David Hoover

From a few dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, Woods Hole Research Center supporters give because they care about the work we do, and because they understand that an investment in science-based solutions is one of the best they can make. They also care about the future of the world’s great ecosystems, are concerned about climate disruption and they would see human prosperity develop within the vision of a verdant Earth.

What does WHRC give in return? From around the corner to around the globe we measure, model and map how the world is changing, providing knowledge and information that a host of environmental nonprofit organizations, governments and policymakers use as they work toward a sustainable planet. Decisions informed by our research safeguard the world’s great landscapes and their biotic processes, all of which provide an invaluable range of services while supporting a diverse array of life.

You may not know the full impact of your giving, but future generations will.
