Annual Giving

Annual Fund

Unlike many well-known research and educational institutions that rely heavily on government funding, CSHL does not offer tenure, focusing instead on launching the careers of exceptionally motivated young scientists. Your unrestricted donation to the annual fund helps jump-start early stage and risky research projects before they are eligible for government grants. This is an important reason for CSHL’s #1 rating among the world’s top 20 institutions in molecular biology and genetics (per Thomson Reuters) for cited research publications.

President’s Council

President’s Council members donate at least $50,000 in funding to the Laboratory each year.  President’s Council members have traditionally supported CSHL Fellows, exceptionally talented young scientists who are recruited after receiving their Ph.D. or M.D. degrees to pursue a period of independent research before taking a faculty position.

Council members are invited annually to special events for CSHL’s major donors to encourage deeper understanding of the value of their investments in the Laboratory’s research and educational programs.
