National Outings

Donating to the service trips program

What are service trips? Though all Sierra Club national outings emphasize conservation, service trips concentrate on specific conservation projects—from removing non-native plants in vulnerable wilderness areas to helping U.S. Forest Service staff maintain trails and marine biologists observe sealife. Service trips allow volunteers to contribute their time and labor to improving the environment; in return, participants gain a deeper understanding of the land, and a sense of ownership.

Because service trips contribute directly to the Sierra Club's conservation goals and give back to our public lands, they operate at reduced cost. Donations help us keep trip prices low, allowing more Sierra Club members to participate.

How do I donate? Please make checks payable to the Sierra Club Foundation; write "service trips" on the memo line.

Send donations to: Sierra Club Outings, 85 Second St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105.

Are donations to service trips tax deductible? Yes. All donations are tax deductible, under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

If you are interested in making other tax deductible donations, please see our Donations and Contributions page.

Thank you for considering a donation to the service trips program!
