Donate to the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER)
Your gift to the ABA Fund for Justice and Education on behalf of the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources will help maintain the Section’s following public service and educational programs:
Carbon Offset: The Section estimates that the average conference attendee’s participation will generate approximately one metric ton of carbon emissions. Help offset your carbon footprint by contributing $20 or more, the cost of a one-ton carbon credit from a verified offset project that will reduce greenhouse gases.
One Million Trees Project: The Section calls on ABA members to contribute to the goal of planting one million trees across the United States. This project is being carried out in partnership with a number of well recognized tree-planting organizations. The Section organizes tree-planting activities at major meetings and supports hands-on tree planting events coordinated by firms, committees, and other groups. Contributions will be used towards purchasing trees.So far, Section members have planted 49,000+ trees.
Travel Stipends: Funding will provide travel support to law students; young lawyers; local, state, federal, and tribal government lawyers; academics; and others who need financial assistance to attend a Section educational event.
The public service programs of the Section of Environmental Engergy Law receive funding through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE). The FJE was created to accept gifts and grants to support the ABA’s public service work. The FJE qualifies as an exempt fund under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions to the FJE are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
