Support Our Mission

Help Us Optimize Learning for All

To sustain the institute's work, we seek philanthropic partners who share our vision—people like you.   Through your gifts we can put the institute on firm financial footing, achieve all the important goals we have set for ourselves, and optimize lifelong learning for all. 

Gifts of any size are vitally important. We will be happy to work with you to develop a gift that matches your interests to our most pressing needs.

Is cutting-edge research your passion? 

Our dedicated faculty have made excellent use of initial funding to support the exciting research projects described in this website. We need your help to create new sources of funding so we can continue our work. 

Do you want to help train future leaders? 

We have secured initial funding to support our fellowship program for training young researchers. We need your help to build an endowed fund that will support our training programs in perpetuity.

Is your goal to see our research put to work? 

We have obtained initial support to hire Science of Learning Institute staff who specialize in translation, dissemination, and outreach. Such individuals help us develop capacity to apply our research in the broader community. With your support we can continue and expand this important work.
