Like many other organizations and institutions at this moment in history, McCrone Research Institute has faced massive disruption caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic where all operations and programs were temporarily halted or suspended.
After 60 years of providing scientific and educational service and for the first time in our organization’s history, we are asking for your help. To ensure that the Institute can continue to operate and foster new opportunities for programming and events that will continue to serve, educate, and enrich the national and international scientific community for generations to come, we have launched a COVID-19 Relief and Preservation Fund.
Invest in the future, please make a gift today to preserve the legacy of Walter and Lucy McCrone and sustain the Institute for current and future generations of scientists. Your gift, at any level, is greatly appreciated.
