At Earthwatch, we're dedicated to protecting threatened wildlife and ecosystems using citizen science that educates and engages the public in the search for a more sustainable way of life. All gifts to Earthwatch are 100% tax-deductible and will be used to fund 50 important research expeditions around the world.

An easy way to make an extra gift to Earthwatch - at NO additional cost to you - is to match your gift through employee giving programs. Many corporations will match their employees' and even their retirees' donations to Earthwatch. 

If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a monetary grant to match your volunteer hours. 

Thank you for looking into whether your gift is eligible for matching!
