SCGIS has launched an SCGIS GoFundMe effort to support our operations. With the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Conference, SCGIS faces potential budget shortfalls across all parts of the organization, including loss of membership income and conference revenue. We remain committed to expanding the reach of SCGIS to build and support a strong, global network of people using GIS for conservation. Will you help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 through our GoFundMe effort or by joining or renewing your membership? Thank you very much for your support!
