A Fundraising Project for The Wistar Institute's Postdoctoral Program

Giving Tuesday began in 2012 as a way for people to give the gift of giving back. Thursday is for giving thanks. Friday is for getting great buys at the mall. Saturday is for supporting small businesses. Monday is the day for online orders. Now, Tuesday can be a way to show your appreciation and support a cause that has a meaningful impact.

This year, The Wistar Institute is getting involved in Giving Tuesday. Every cent raised will go toward the postdoctoral research program here at the institute. At any given time, there are literally dozens of young scientists working tirelessly in our labs under the guidance of Wistar’s researchers. They are aiding in the discoveries of today as well as learning how to become the leading scientists and researchers of tomorrow.

Join us in supporting our postdoctoral research program by participating in Giving Tuesday!

Be sure to like us on facebook to follow what the postdoc researchers are doing with the money raised through this day of giving!

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and use the hashtags #givingtuesday and #givingtuesdayphilly as a way of letting others know you’ve shown support!

Giving Tuesday Music Video

You will miss postdoctoral researchers when they're gone. That's why they put a music video together to remind you how important funding is!
