AMS Giving Program

Giving to AMS provides necessary funding for a number of worthwhile programs, many of which are inspiring and encouraging our next generation of outstanding scientists. Last year, member donations provided support to more than 100 students through the AMS fellowship, scholarship, and travel support programs.

Whether you have a strong interest in education, policy, history or public awareness, be assured that your contribution plays a critical role in supporting AMS efforts to strengthen the weather, water and climate community.

We invite you to learn more about all the ways you can give to AMS.
