McCrone Research Institute COVID-19 Relief and Preservation Fund

Like many other organizations and institutions at this moment in history, McCrone Research Institute has been greatly impacted by this unprecedented pandemic. Due to COVID-19, all Institute operations and programs have been temporarily suspended and we have gone to an on-demand course schedule.

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.

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.

Thank you,

Gary J. Laughlin, Ph.D.
