The Sierra Club - Houston Group is truly a "grassroots" organization. We have no paid staff. One hundred percent of what we accomplish is due to the efforts of volunteers. The Group also raises all of its operating funds locally. It is through the generosity of those who participate in our fundraisers and those within and outside our organization who share our goals of a cleaner environment and responsible protection of our world's wild places that we are able to pursue our mission.

How can you contribute?
Houston has been known as "the belly of the beast: the home of oil and gas, a hotbed of unfettered capitalism." Yet, the Sierra Club Houston Regional Group continues to thrive and be an effective force for change, whether it be for preserving the wetlands and estuaries of Galveston Bay, influencing development plans on the Katy Prairie or promoting mass transit alternatives. Progress is made possible through your generous contributions. Please contribute today. We thank you for the vital role you play.

How You Can Help Us
Dear Houston Sierra Club Supporter,
It takes both volunteer dedication and money to keep our local work going. This year the Houston Group will receive no part of the annual dues paid by members to the national Sierra Club (in the past we have usually received about $2,500 each year). Although we are taking measures to reduce costs, we must fund meeting room costs and our vital conservation work via other means.
The Houston Sierra Club is one of the strongest defenders of our local environment. We speak – we write – we act – we volunteer in defense of clean air and water, forest protection, a strong park system, trustworthy floodplain maps, and a healthy future for people and our patch of the Earth.

If you shop at Kroger, you can help support the Houston Sierra Club's public education efforts in the Houston area by linking your Kroger Card to the Houston Sierra Club. This year Kroger re-organized their community giving process, and to participate in the new program shoppers need to get the Houston Sierra Club 'bar code" and have that scanned and linked to their Kroger card. This can be done by any Kroger cashier in a check-out line. Click here to download the form you'll need (.pdf).
