Payment Options

Individual Sponsorship Opportunity

At the end of the registration process, you have the opportunity to become a sponsor of the Earth Day Conference. By providing support in addition to your registration fee, you will help boost the legacy of Gaylord Nelson and the Nelson Institute in advancing environmental education and public service. If you add a donation, we will list your name as an individual sponsor on the conference website and list you among other generous donors in our magazine, In Common. You can also choose to give now to become an individual Earth Day sponsor, or use this form to mail in your donation. If you choose to make a donation by mail, please include two checks - one for your registration fee and one for your gift amount.

Conference Transportation Carbon Calculation

With the help of the Madison Environmental Group, the Nelson Institute continues to track the conference's greenhouse gas emissions. Each year, this process helps us identify opportunities for reducing the impact of this conference and future conferences. To help with this calculation, we ask you to provide information about how you plan to travel to the conference when you register online. We encourage all attendees to use alternative forms of transportation - biking, walking, Madison Metro, carpooling, Wisconsin's RIDESHARE program - when possible. We appreciate the time you take to provide information about your transportation plans!
