Giving Opportunities

From Students to Scientists to Structures

An important part of the American Committee’s mission is raising funds for the Weizmann Institute’s innovative, creative science and education initiatives. With the goal of making philanthropy as interesting and full of promise as the research, we offer a range of giving opportunities for donors at any level. For example, recruiting the very best new scientists and establishing their labs is crucial to the Institute’s survival. So is instrumentation – Weizmann’s most critical and constant need, as high-tech equipment is costly and rapidly becomes obsolete. You can fund an area of research important to you; endow a graduate student scholarship or professorial chair; name a laboratory or a building; contribute toward a particular project that you find compelling. Our Center for Personalized Philanthropy will help find the right gift, at the right amount, for you.

Center for Personalized Philanthropy

In order to succeed, bold scientific vision requires bold philanthropic vision. To help you reach your giving goal, the American Committee’s Center for Personalized Philanthropy offers a full-spectrum approach to philanthropy. Combine gifts that favor both you and Weizmann and create a valuable philanthropic legacy for generations to come. We’ll show you how every gift can matter and help you move closer to your goal: the right gift, for the right donor, for the right purpose.

    This is your starting place to answer the question: “What is the best gift for me to make?”. And the answer will most often be: people. There are many ways to support scientists and their research. Consider a fund in your name, or in honor or memory of a loved one, that will support scholarships, new scientists, professorial chairs or research of special interest to you. We’ll help you match your compelling interests with the Institute's compelling needs.
