Giving Tuesday

As we approach the holiday season and #GivingTuesday, we hope that you will consider a donation to the Genetics Society of America (GSA). We rely upon your charitable contributions to promote a strong future for our field.

GSA is the voice for those conducting fundamental studies in genetics and those working with model organisms from Arabidopsis to zebrafish. The Society represents the collective interests of the entire genetics community—spanning model systems, topics of interest, and research approaches—and serves as your voice in advocacy, education, public outreach, and so much more. We are especially committed to fostering the next generation of scholars in our field by promoting the careers of students and postdocs.


Donate to GSA

You can help GSA support activities that span the breadth of the genetics community by donating to several funds:


In addition, the Society maintains dedicated resources to support award programs specific to individual model organism communities:

  • Chi-Bin Chien Fund – Supports the Chi-Bin Chien Award, given to an outstanding graduate student, postdoctoral trainee, or recently appointed faculty member who has made significant contributions to the field of zebrafish research.

GSA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or service are provided in exchange for your financial donation.


Gift & Group Memberships

Gift Membership ButtonYou can also share the benefits of GSA by providing a gift membership to a colleague, trainee, or friend—or signing up your lab or department through the new group membership program.




Finally, if you’ll be doing holiday shopping on, please support GSA through AmazonSmile. You’ll see the same prices and selection as always, but GSA will receive a small percentage of eligible purchases as a bonus.


We thank you in advance for partnering with GSA in support of these valuable activities.
