Join the 96 Club!
We’re excited to bring you a new way to support to the Student Participation Fund: The 96 Club, named after 1996, the year the G-I was founded. Become a member by contributing $96 (or more) to the fund. Every year you’re a member, you’ll receive that year’s members-only thank you gift*. You’ll also receive a 96 Club membership pin. Your entire donation will go to the Student Participation Fund.
Our 2023 gift for 96 Club members is a pair of G-I socks! These exclusive socks are made in Europe of Oeko-Tex certified cotton for comfort, polyamide for strength, and elastane for stretch.
If you prefer, you can still choose our 2021-22 gift: a bobblehead statuette of Karl Terzaghi! The bobblehead, which stands around 6” high, is exclusive to the G-I and sculpted to our specifications. Supplies are limited.
We have other thank-you gifts available as well.
If you contribute $25 or more, we'll send you a commemorative 25th anniversary Geo-Institute pin.
Thank you for supporting the next generation of geotechnical engineers!
