We have a GoFundMe campaign (our second one) that is set up for online donations. Additionally, you can send us a check made out to March for Science Denver and mail it to:
March for Science-Denver
PO Box 11957
Denver, CO 80221
A march of this size incurs a number of unavoidable expenses:
Logistics - Event insurance ($ .50 per attendee), Port-o-potties for 13,000+ people! ($6,550.00) parking, walkie-talkies, bank accounts, websites, barricades, printing (Notices, signage, and maps, and volunteer T-shirts) all add up.
“Science & Health” - Ensuring water ($2,000), disability services, security personnel, are available at all times.
"Sound science” - The big ticket item here is the sound system so that 13,000+ people can hear the speakers. The sound system can run approximately $13,000.00. Additionally, video of the march will increase that number slightly.
“Green & Clean” - We are a Denver Green Certified event. This is a massive and expensive undertaking. It means that, to the best of our ability, every scrap will be picked up and recycled and recycling containers/trucks will be on site. It also means creating an event infrastructure (water tanks, bike corrals, and recycling stations) that is green and sustainably sourced. Additionally, utilizing recycled products is (unfortunately) the more expensive option. We expect these efforts to cost at least $4,000.

Yes. The march is non-partisan, but it is absolutely intended to have an impact on policy makers.
We will both have a diversity committee and a diverse steering committee that represents people of many backgrounds and identities. Science is done by POC, women, immigrants, LGBTQ, indigenous people, people of all beliefs and non-belief. We hope that this diversity is reflected in both the leadership of the march and the march itself. A diverse and inclusive scientific community asks a broader range of questions and rewards us with a greater understanding of our world.
