Throughout the year the SEG Foundation promotes special funding opportunities for its donors and for the general public. This page highlights current campaigns and causes that are in need of support.

The IRA Charitable Rollover is Now Permanent

If you are 70½ or older, you can support a number of SEG programs through a meaningful and tax-free gift directly from your traditional or Roth IRA. Use this to advance the mission of the Society and directly support our growing geophysical community.

What are the benefits?

  • Up to $100,000 may be transferred every year as a new outright gift or to satisfy an existing pledge
  • Qualifies for the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
  • Such gifts are excluded from your taxable income

Contact your IRA Manager today and request a distribution be made directly to the SEG Foundation. Request that your gift be identified with your name, address, and intention to use it as an IRA rollover. Thank you!

Forrest Honorary Fund

The SEG Foundation has recently established honorary endowment funds to honor outstanding SEG colleagues who have made contributions to geophysics, the Society, and the oil and gas industry. The first Honorary Endowment Fund will be dedicated to Mike Forrest for his lifelong leadership and contributions in these areas. Mike has chosen the Geoscientists Without Borders (GWB) program as the beneficiary of his named honorary endowment fund — the Michael C. Forrest Honorary Endowed Fund.

Matching Funds now available.

Please join the many others who are honoring Mike with a gift to the GWB endowment today. Donate Now by selecting SEG Programs and then Michael C. Forrest Honorary Endowed Fund in the fund drop down list. Thank you!
