Your Support Is Crucial
Federal support is essential for biomedical research. However, many of the greatest leaps in scientific understanding have been propelled by contributions from individuals who support the passionate vision of scientists who pursue paths less traveled but paved with promise.
Your donations are the catalyst for many of our scientists’ most groundbreaking projects that are most likely to lead to major advances in health. Major advances in medicine, including the effort to develop a vaccine for polio, were initially funded not by government grants but by private individuals.
La Jolla Institute seeks gifts of all sizes to support promising scientific ventures aimed at making a profound impact on public health. These gifts of unrestricted funds help drive exciting research projects that are not always recognized by federal agencies facing strict limitations on the risks they can take, and drawn-out funding schedules.
Your generosity turns curiosity into hope.
