Giving Tuesday

Habitat Work Day
Habitat Work Day

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 3, and throughout the year.

People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 14.2 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved.

Here is a list of ways you can help make a difference in your community.

When you symbolically adopt a terrapin, you help fund important research on this unique Texas species and its habitat. Through the program, you will get to name a terrapin and receive a certificate of adoption with a photo. Adopt a terrapin for yourself or to give as a gift.

You can help the dolphins of Galveston Bay! EIH has partnered with Galveston Bay Foundation to establish the Galveston Bay Dolphin Research and Conservation Program, which monitors the dolphin population, researches their health, ecology and behavior, and studies the impact of human-dolphin interactions. You can support this program by donating to symbolically adopt or name a dolphin, and you'll be updated throughout the year on your dolphin buddy!

Habitat Work Day
Give the gift of time by volunteering in the EIH WaterSmart School Habitat Demonstration Lab. We will meet on December 3 from 9-11 a.m. in front of the NOA I building on the UHCL campus. No experience necessary.

Texas Envirothon
In order to help Texas high school students enhance their understanding of environmental issues and learn what it means to work as a team, we are dependent upon the generosity of private and corporate support. To that end, we have created the Texas Envirothon Partners Program, a formal structure for recognition of annual giving by companies who support the Texas Envirothon. Donations from individuals are also appreciated.
