Support Scorecard
Contribute to Scorecard to help us continue to provide Scorecard as a community service. Delivering reliable and accessible environmental information online requires considerable resources. To continue providing this service, we need your financial support.

Send a Fax to the Top-Ranked Polluters in Your Area
Scorecard provides a free fax service to let you tell polluting companies directly what your concerns are and request answers to your questions. At your request, a message is sent by fax to the facility's key official at no cost to you, with the facts and figures for that company already included. You can tailor the message any way you want.

Send an Email to Decision Makers
Scorecard connects you directly to key decision makers involved in controlling local pollution problems. Contact the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to support efforts to improve community right-to-know, accelerate the clean-up of hazardous waste sites, reduce cancer risks from air pollution, or control agricultural pollution. Or communicate with state officials to demand action to improve your local air quality. Scorecard provides an example message that focuses on a pending decision that could have real environmental impact. You can tailor the message any way you want.

Email a Pollution Report Card to a Friend
Share what you learn about local pollution from Scorecard with your friends. Help us spread the word! Scorecard will send a free, customized report summarizing local environmental problems to anyone - just provide their name, email address and zipcode.

Join an Online Discussion
Discussion Forums are the place to air your views, ask questions, or give answers about local chemical pollution, polluters and pollutants. Find out what people are saying about a company, or meet others working on environmental problems in your community. Scorecard hosts discussions focused on local pollution problems, on agricultural pollution, on the health effects of toxic chemicals, and on chemicals in consumer products.

Volunteer with Environmental Groups
Scorecard partners with VolunteerMatch to help our users get involved locally in solving environmental problems. You can find out about volunteer opportunities with environmental organizations in your community: just specify how far you want to travel and how often you want to offer your support. Scorecard also provides a directory of environmental organizations in your area that you can contact to work with on local environmental problems.

Join the Scorecard Network
Help build the network of organizations using Scorecard and making it available to a wide audience. If you publish a website, integrate Scorecard as a resource for local information about the environment. You can easily incorporate Scorecard's maps and/or data into your site to help people find out about pollution in your community. Banners and buttons that provide attractive links to Scorecard are available for free, including banners that allows users to type in their zip code on your site and go directly to Scorecard's report for their community.
