Basic scientific research provides the foundation for discoveries that lead to innovations critical to our long-term economic growth and societal well-being, and private foundations and individuals have a crucial role to play in supporting it.
By serving as an impartial adviser to philanthropists, promoting collaboration among those who are interested in this vital stage of scientific discovery, and bringing together donors and top scientists, the Science Philanthropy Alliance aims to substantially increase philanthropic funding for fundamental research and create a community of funders for discovery-driven scientific inquiry.
