The Environmental Resources Center relies principally on external support to pursue its mission and we appreciate your considering giving financial support! What would we use the money for? Lots of things! If you look at the research, education and outreach activities listed under the Activities menu, you can imagine the costs associated with them. Answering this a different way, we seek support for equipment, supplies, student internships, graduate research assistantships, and faculty time.

You can make a tax-deductible donation to the ERC. The simplest approach is to use this link. You can also send us a check made out to “Indiana-Purdue Foundation” in the amount you want to donate, and put “ERC” in the memo field. You can send it to the Director of the ERC, and you’re done. Thanks! Either way, you will receive follow up confirmation for tax purposes.

There are, of course, numerous ways to give. For those details, we direct you to the website for the professionals in the Purdue University Fort Wayne Development Office. Just be sure to tell them you want your contribution to go to the ERC!

When you give, you can leave it up to us to decide how best to use your contribution. You can also fund a specific kind of activity, such as internships, brochure or website development on a particular topic. For smaller contributions we recommend the unrestricted approach, so we can combine funds to get projects done.

If you have any questions, you can contact the ERC Director or Purdue University Fort Wayne Development. Whatever you decide to do, we thank you for considering us.
