Science Philanthropy Alliance

RCSA is a founding member of the Science Philanthropy Alliance (SPA) along with Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Kavli Foundation, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Simons Foundation. SPA is committed to creating a community of funders of fundamental research and to increasing private investment in fundamental research by an additional $1 billion annually within five years. It also aims to ensure that the scientific enterprise of the country has the scientists it needs, especially younger scientists, and that they are able to take the risks appropriate to discovering nature’s deepest secrets. This effort includes demonstrating the power of scientific discovery and engaging new philanthropists and other non-profit institutions and foundations to support it. More
