Support BBRI

Become our Partner in Advancing Basic Research

Philanthropy plays an important role in BBRI’s mission to promote the understanding, treatment and prevention of specific human diseases. Through their financial support, individual donors, foundations and corporations become our partners in this mission, showing an insightful understanding of the importance of basic research to the ongoing improved health of humankind. BBRI is grateful to have partners with such strong and thoughtful commitment to enabling research that can lead to cures for disease.

We hope you will choose to become our partner by helping to advance the world-class basic biomedical research programs at BBRI.  Your unrestricted gift to BBRI’s Annual Fund helps advance the scientists’ work in numerous ways, providing:

  • Funding for postdoctoral fellows as they begin their scientific careers
  • Seed money for new investigators at BBRI who are gathering data to attract major grants from sources such as the NIH
  • Bridge funding to support scientists in between grants so their programs can continue productively and BBRI maintains their intellectual capital.
  • Resources to purchase the advanced scientific equipment needed to perform basic research

You can make a gift in many ways: through a check, a gift of appreciated securities and life income gifts such as a Gift Annuity.  You can also join BBRI’s Discovery Society which recognizes all our friends who have included BBRI in their estate plans.
