Help further science education by purchasing a Cheers to tumbler. All proceeds support Headwaters. We have two options (see photo above). Cheers to Education or Cheers to Science. They cost $17 per cup (price includes shipping if needed). Buy locally in Truckee and save $2 on shipping. Orders can be made via paypal below or locally by contacting info@headwatersscienceinstitute.org.  The tumblers are also available on ebay. Cheers to education: Buy Now Button   Cheers to science:Buy Now Button

2. Use Amazon Smile as your bookmarked Amazon page to have a portion of your purchase go to Headwaters. It doesn’t cost you anything, but our programs benefit. Make sure that you use the link each time. Amazon doesn’t remember!  Or in stall the always smile add-in to your webbrowser. 

3. Escrip: Signup with Escrip and give back to Headwaters while you shop. You can link Headwaters to your grocery card or start your online shopping here. It takes less than a minute to sign on. There is no purchase necessary, it just connects you to Headwaters at places you already shop.

4. Benefit: We partnered with Benefit as a fundraising solution. It is free to members and free to Headwaters. Benefit is a free iPhone or Android phone app that can be used to pay for your everyday purchases such as groceries, clothes, home goods, and more. You can pay on site at the store or online. A portion of your purchase goes directly back to Headwaters. Retailers include Lowe’s, Amazon, Target, Starbucks, and many more! For instance, buy $300 worth of golf equipment at Callaway online, and $60 goes back to Headwaters. Learn more here. Be sure to name Headwaters as your beneficiary.

5. Volunteer: Please contact Meg to learn more about volunteer opportunities. We can often use extra adults to help assist during programs. We can periodically use help with cleanup days, mailings, filing, organizing gear, etc…

6. Board Member: We are interested in adding 1-2 new people to our board. Please contact Meg if you are interested.
