How to Support MEECS

Individual contributions to MEECS can be a great way to give back to the community and support environmental education. Donations to MEECS can be made through Central Michigan University (CMU).

Your CMU gift amount is one of the few deductions still allowable under federal tax law. The amount will vary depending on your tax bracket, but the savings - and the support - are significant.

For example, a donation of $200 could yield $50 federal tax savings. This is based on the individual marginal tax rate ranging from 10% to 35%. Click here for a printable version of the donation form.
