Thanks again to each and every one!  Be on the look out for Thank You's from GeoFORCE students.


May 06, 2016

To all who gave, in every amount, THANKS for showing our sponsors that we are in this with them and that we are truly grateful for their support of 1,636 GeoFORCE high school students since the first field experience in 2005!  To the GeoFORCE students, families,  advisory committee members, Jackson School supporters and ALL  friends including individual employees of our sponsors...THANKS!



Last 24 Hours to give any amount! Thanks All!

May 06, 2016

Thanks to all who helped us raise over $10,000 for GeoFORCE during the Hornraiser crowdfunding campaign.  There is still time to give any amount before the campaign ends Saturday at 11:59pm.  We want to show our sponsors that we appreciate the funding they have contributed for 12 summers.  Even with the challenges of the current oil and gas price environment, our sponsors have provided funding for a 12th summer of geological field experiences for high school students the summer of 2016.  This campaign is just a way to let them know you are invested with them in the next generation of STEM talent!  Give today.

The Last 48 Hours!

We won't have the final count until tomorrow for the number of donors over the last 40 hours for the 40 Hours for the 40 Acres campaign, but thanks much to all who contributed during this two day timeframe.   Let's add to the total in the last 8 days of the Hornraiser campaign.  Share the link with friends and families and let them know any and all amounts donated are important and will show the GeoFORCE sponsors our gratitude for the 11 summers of life changing geology field experiences they made possible at no cost to students and their families.
