Employee Giving


Leverage your contribution through your workplace 

Many workplaces offer opportunities to donate to the charitable organization of your choice through payroll deduction or matching volunteer time. If yours does,  you can designate the Environmental Science Center as a beneficiary on your workplace giving form. Your continued support ensures that students in South King County have access to natural spaces and scientific exploration so they can understand their place in our watershed.


 Want to bring the ESC to your workplace or bring your colleagues to the beach?

We would love to host your colleagues or come to you workplaces to speak about how our programs get more students outside with scientific inquiry. Contact ESC Executive Director Joanna Stodden at 206-428-4266 or at joanna@environmentalsciencecenter.org for more information.
