The Next 90

Charitable Giving

In 2021, Berkeley Lab’s 90th year, we’re celebrating past achievements and imagining tomorrow’s solutions. As we focus on the next 90 years, Berkeley Lab will reaffirm its commitment to outreach, education, and diversity by supporting non-profit STEM organizations that help prepare young scholars to become our next leaders and problem solvers.

Non-profit STEM Organizations

Berkeley Lab is providing institutional donations to each of these organizations, and we encourage individuals to participate in the charitable giving initiative as well by contributing personal donations and/or volunteering.
