Science for a Sustainable Future

With the support of generous donors, Berkeley Lab continues to bring lasting impact and scientific knowledge to the challenges of our time. Donors to the lab support chairs and fellowships for our researchers, help build facilities to enable cutting-edge science, contribute equipment that moves discovery forward, and provide vital seed funding for innovative programs. Berkeley Lab Foundation welcomes meeting with you to find ways to help you realize your philanthropic goals. Our staff can guide you in how to include Berkeley Lab in your will; donating stock or property; or making a memorial or tribute gift in the name of someone you wish to honor. There are also ways your tax-deductible contributions can support Berkeley Lab right now by endowing chairs; nurturing a welcoming, diverse and inclusive work place; and supporting fellowships that enable graduate students to gain valuable work experience at Berkeley Lab.

Berkeley Bridge Fellowships

Awarded annually, Berkeley Bridge Graduate Summer Fellowships enable top UC Berkeley graduate students of diverse backgrounds and limited means to work at Berkeley Lab during the summer. Your gifts will be pooled with gifts from others—current employees, retirees, and friends of Berkeley Lab. Many fellows go on to careers in science. DONATE NOW

Berkeley Lab Postdoc Association (BLPA)

A volunteer organization to enrich postdocs’ scientific careers through social and professional events and activities, BLPA provides new postdocs a welcoming start at Berkeley Lab and peer-to-peer support. It also serves an important scientific purpose by bringing together early career scientists from diverse disciplines to collaborate and share ideas informally. DONATE NOW

Environmental Resilience Accelerator (Era)

Climate change won’t wait. Beyond innovating in the lab, this interdisciplinary group catalyzes and cross-fertilizes research with real- world partners to enact practical, proven, scalable solutions. Donors support 5-year, demonstration projects offering potential impact for the future of water, healthy land, and sustainable cities. DONATE NOW
