The SEG Foundation Board of Directors held their September 2016 meeting at the Houston Food Bank. David and Becky Bartel, who regularly volunteer at the Food Bank, hosted the meeting. The Foundation Board of Directors donated more than 150 lbs. of food and school supplies for the Houston Food Bank's Backpack Buddy and Teachers Aid programs. Combined with a cash donation from the SEG Senior Management Team, the donations provided more than 750 meals for Houston-area families.
The SEG Foundation encourages and supports scientific, educational, and charitable activities of benefit to geophysicists, through solicitation of contributions. Activities supported by contributions to the SEG Foundation are intended to supplement those supported by SEG's operating budget.
The Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit organized specifically to provide management, reporting, and stewardship services that donors require. The Foundation depends upon annual contributions like yours to fund important programs for members of SEG and society at large.
