Wistar is poised for the future to make major research advances in the areas of cancer, immunology and vaccines, but we need your support. The Institute relies significantly on philanthropy to maintain its groundbreaking research programs.

The Wistar Institute’s independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) status creates a platform for our researchers to do original thinking and breakthrough research while also providing a community of collaboration – similar to a research “think tank” – not often found in larger medical and academic institutions.

There are many opportunities to make meaningful gifts to advance The Wistar Institute's mission. Your donation can enable visionary new ideas in disease research, assist in the training and mentoring of budding scientists, power Wistar’s facilities with state-of-the-art equipment, and propel high-risk/high-reward research projects.
