American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science

Supporting Science for the Benefit of Humanity
Location: New York , NY
Year founded: 1944


Founded in 1944, the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science has been a driving force throughout the history of the Weizmann Institute – fostering the partnership between science and philanthropy while supporting the Institute’s needs, leading the way in providing resources for continuous development and pioneering projects, and promoting awareness of the vision and accomplishments of its scientists. 

 The American Committee is not only a national organization, but also a community of dedicated people who share a common mission: advancing the Institute’s goals by becoming partners in the search for answers to the most difficult challenges facing humanity.

 The American philanthropic presence is felt wherever you look on the Institute’s campus. Buildings, laboratories, instruments, and educational and research projects owe their existence to the efforts of the American Committee and its loyal supporters. These same donors provide the endowed professorial chairs, scholarships, and other financial assistance that support the scientists, teachers, and students who bring life and meaning to the physical facilities.

 All of us—and each of us—must do all that we are able to ensure that the trajectory and pace of modern science never falters. The best of human existence is ahead of us—and science will transport us there.

Additionally, the American Committee has launched Care + Share + Repair, a digital social action platform which empowers individuals to leverage their personal capacity for good. The platform, hosted on the American Committee’s website, allows participants to make a video testimonial, expressing their hopes for a better world through science, or to launch a personal fundraising campaign to support one of 12 life-changing Weizmann research projects. Tell us your wish for a better tomorrow:

The American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
