Support the work of the Academy by making an individual or corporate donation


Donations have helped to provide many of our Academy Indiana scientists and young aspiring scientists with funding needed to support their research, and to participate in Academy sponsored science education opportunities.
The time has never been better to give a donation to the Academy.
Of course there are several ways to accomplish this, however this request simply asks you to consider giving a financial donation in the amount of $1000.00, $500.00, $250.00 or $100.00, or in another increment that is most comfortable for you. Working together, we can help shape a future we can all be proud of.
