Science is crucial to meeting the challenges of the 21st Century. Solving complex problems demands scientific rigor, innovation, and commitment. These have been the hallmark of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory since it was founded nearly 90 years ago. Today, Berkeley Lab applies critical research to such global challenges as climate change, food security, clean energy, sustainable agriculture, health, and more.

Philanthropy has been integral to Berkeley Lab since the beginning. Berkeley Lab Foundation is the bridge between Berkeley Lab and donors wishing to support not only what is possible, but what is necessary for a sustainable future.
