Carnegie Mellon University

Now more than ever, science needs YOUR support

Giving is personal, and we provide our alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and students with the means to be philanthropic and effectual in ways that reflect their passions, lifestyle and financial situations.

The Mellon College of Science is a vibrant school committed to the discovery of knowledge and the training of the next generation of scientists. Our faculty, students and alumni in all four disciplines: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics are international leaders making advances with lasting impact on foundational knowledge and critical global challenges including sustainability, health, and quality of life.

We have a passion for excellence in research and education and an open, collegial environment that supports creativity and initiative. We seek to address worthwhile problems through fundamental research, translational efforts, and entrepreneurial activities while fostering an inclusive atmosphere that values and supports faculty, staff, and students in achieving their ambitions. Your gift to the Mellon College of Science expresses your commitment to this vision. Join us!


When you donate to the Mellon College of Science, you guarantee that our students receive the highest quality of education — through faculty and facilities, scholarships and research opportunities, access to the latest equipment and travel to conferences. Support our students' exceptional intellect and enhance not only the value of their diplomas, but also science and society.
