Mark your calendars for Northeastern’s Giving Day: Thursday, April 11

Make your donations to OGL go twice as far!  

Thanks to an anonymous donor, all contributions to the Ocean Genome Legacy (OGL) Endowed Fund between now and April 11 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000! The OGL Endowed Fund ensures that OGL and its irreplaceable collection will always be there to protect and preserve the spectacular living diversity of the sea—and now, your generous Giving Day donation will go twice as far in supporting OGL’s critical mission. 

Please remember that no donation is too small, and every donation helps! Make your donation here: https://givingday.northeastern.edu/campaigns/ocean-genome-legacy-fund-1
