Individual Donations & Membership

When you donate to CEC, you help connect our environmental community, and make it stronger and more effective. Your gift of any amount helps support our work!

Donations of $40 or more allow you to become a member of CEC and begin a meaningful and ongoing partnership to support environmental issues in the Houston/Gulf Coast region. Every membership is vital to our organization’s ability to fulfill our mission to foster education, dialogue, and collaboration on environmental issues.

Memberships include a variety of benefits, including the following:

  • Premium Membership $100 All of the standard member benefits plus three  additional registration discounts
  • Standard annual membership $40 (the value of benefits received at this level is $15):
    • Subscription to weekly Environmental News Update
    • The equivalent of two discounts (valued at $3 each) to participate in CEC events for which there is an admission fee
    • Opportunities to participate in CEC committees: programs, communications, membership, nominations, event planning, and award selection.

Become a Sustaining Member by making a tax-deductible monthly donation through the PayPal Giving Fund.
