Support the GCAS on Giving Tuesday

Please Help the GCAS on Giving Tuesday!

GCAS sets upOn December 3, 2019, Typepad - the blogging platform on which this GCAS website reaches out to all of cyberspace - will announce our nonprofit charitable organization as part of a social media blast associated with Giving Tuesday. Each year, Giving Tuesday kicks off the international holiday and end-of-year charitable season on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. In 2019, that Tuesday falls on December 3.

100_9954The GCAS is a first-time participant in Giving Tuesday this year. From 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, everyone is invited to donate to the GCAS to support the educational programs, library, and general funding we provide in furtherance of our mission of preservation and protection of our region's historic, cultural, and archaeological resources.

San Lorenzo 3rd and 4th Graders Receive Site Steward Certificates ALCS Archaeolgy Crew students and Hurley 5th graders Dragonfly PetroglyphsThis year, our donors have made cash gifts to our education fund that have allowed us to continue our established educational programs to students from elementary through secondary school; and to expand our educational support to the graduate and postgraduate levels with the inaugural year of our GCAS Nancy Coinman Grant Award program. Over 18 donors have generously supported our GCAS Library with in-kind donations of a wide range of high quality archaeological and scientific volumes as well as basic office supplies. Our GCAS is very grateful for all this support from so many people in our community.
