Gifts to Unrestricted Giving allow The Wistar Institute to provide critical funding for extraordinary research opportunities that will ultimately lead to new vaccines and therapies against many human diseases, and help meet emerging needs and challenges as they arise. These unrestricted funds give Wistar the flexibility to undertake critical new initiatives, such as developing a breast cancer consortium and attracting world-renowned faculty before a permanent endowment is fully in place. Unrestricted Giving is a vital source of institutional momentum for Wistar, and the primary way for our partners to help sustain the successful individuality of Wistar.
The President's Society
The President’s Society is a group of individuals who understand the importance of basic biomedical research to the elimination of cancer and infectious disease as causes of human suffering and death worldwide. With their annual gifts of $1,000 or more, they support research programs that are vital to The Wistar Institute’s mission, such as pilot research projects, shared research facilities, faculty recruitment and training for the next generation of scientific leaders.
A donation of stock to The Wistar Institute will provide our scientists with the resources they need to advance their research, while at the same time providing you with substantial tax benefits.
One of the best ways to maximize the impact of your generosity is to have your employer match all or part of your donation to Wistar. Many companies have matching gift programs for their employees.
