As a society it is our responsibility to provide grants and investment capital to expand research into new areas of discovery.
Throughout history, cutting edge science has been fueled through the generous contributions and early stage investment capital provided by private individuals and their families. They understood the potential impact that the scientific breakthroughs could have for them personally and for humanity.
We need to continue this tradition of “patron science” to ensure that the best and the brightest can do what they do best.
The Hero Science Foundation identifies the best target recipients for grants and investments. We do the due diligence and vetting of the science and the teams so our supporters at all levels can feel confident that their contributions are leveraged to the best possible extent.
Thank you in advance for considering a gift to the Hero Science Foundation. We would also love to hear from you if you would like to provide in kind services or volunteer your time.
We understand that some supporters would prefer to have all of their contributions go directly to research, so we are making a 100% commitment that by default all donations will go directly to research.
We will fund our day-to-day operations and any awareness campaigns or advocacy through an “opt-in” policy.
What this means is that you will have to tell us if you choose to earmark any of your contributions to help us keep the lights on and to do what we do.
