Philanthropy has been part of Berkeley Lab since its inception, when Dr. Lawrence successfully engaged donor support for his earliest cyclotrons. Today, we are building on that history to expand what is possible for the lab beyond the boundaries of our current funding. With our philanthropic partners, we will pursue the most innovative science and solve the most crucial societal problems.
The Berkeley Lab Foundation was established as a separate 501(c)3 by the University of California in 2013 to give interested supporters a way to work with the lab. We are seeking volunteer leaders and donors who are excited about the opportunity to be a part of the amazing science happening at Berkeley Lab.
