Make a Difference This Holiday Season

It's that time of year again - the weather is changing, snow has already begun to fall in certain areas of the country, and holiday music can be heard while shopping at any major convenience store.

At The Groundwater Foundation, we are busy gearing up for what will likely be one of our biggest years to date. In 2015, we will celebrate 30 years of groundwater education and protection by not only taking a look at all we have accomplished in the past 30 years, but also by looking to the future and next 30 years. Even with all we have accomplished thus far, this is only the beginning - there is so much more work to be done.

This is where we need you.

#GivingTuesday is a day set aside to give back. It follows the craziness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and it reminds us all what the holiday season is really about. Last year, we campaigned to raise funds for a new youth program - Groundwater Restoration through Education. With your help, we were able to make a difference. Check out some statistics from last year's campaign:

  • $1,075 Raised on December 3, 2013
  • 212 Students Reached
  • 10 Teachers Trained
  • 5 Title I Schools Changed Forever

Help us continue to make a difference in the year to come by once again supporting youth groundwater education on #GivingTuesday. Here is how you can get involved:

1. Donate on December 2nd

2. Spread the Word on Social Media

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and tell your friends, family, and coworkers about #GivingTuesday. We'll be posting stories and photos about our projects and programs leading up to December 2nd, so check back regularly for new updates!

3. Get Informed and Take Action

Groundwater is a vital resource, and everyone benefits from a sustainable supply of clean groundwater. Learn the facts about how you can conserve water in your own life and share them with others!
