Why give to the Whitney Laboratory?
Since scientific grants only address the immediate needs of specific research programs, your gift to the Whitney Lab provides us the flexibility to rapidly respond to exciting new opportunities and to plan for long-term development. This vital funding gives the Whitney Lab the margin of excellence it needs to remain a leader among the nation's top public research institutions.
We have just completed a capital campaign for a new education facility, the Center for Marine Studies, which serves students of all ages. We have embarked on a new campaign for the Center for Marine Animal Health and a new housing/conference complex so that we can bring more students and visiting scientists to the Whitney Lab, enriching their learning experience and the scientists and students working here.
Your investment in the Whitney Lab is an investment in the students and faculty who live, learn and work here today and in future scientists whose scientific curiosity was sparked here. Indeed, the countless scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs and advances in basic biological science inspired by the experience of the Whitney Lab touch our friends and neighbors everywhere. The experimental biologists of tomorrow will be shaped by the impact of your gifts and investments.
