Give to the AMS

AMS promotes the development and dissemination of information and education on the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences and the advancement of their professional applications. The Society is grateful to its members for generously supporting programs that rely on member support to be executed. Many of the member supported programs benefit students, their academic studies, and their ultimate pursuit to establish a career in the AMS related sciences. Contributions are also needed in the areas of Teacher Training, for K-12 science teachers; preserving the History of the Sciences; and for AMS Policy Program, where the goal is to strengthen the connection between public policy and Earth system science and services by building policy research and by creating opportunities for policymakers and scientists to engage and exchange perspectives to foster better-informed policy decisions.

The AMS is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax deductible.  For more information about supporting the work of the AMS please contact Director of Development Stephanie Armstrong.
