Give the gift of community water stewardship - now and in the future
At CSI, we depend on the generosity and dedication of the individuals who support our mission. Together, with the support of donors like you, CSI continues to partner with volunteers to collect regulatory-quality water quality data, empower citizens with the tools and knowledge to act as stewards of their local water resources, provide water science education, and inspire the next generation of water stewards, activists, and scientists.
You can support CSI with a one-time donation, by becoming a new member, or by renewing your membership today. Donations can be made online or by mailing your contribution to the Community Science Institute at the address listed at the bottom of the page. CSI is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
