Ways to Give
We’re raising thousands to help millions.
At Van Andel Institute, we’re turning hope into action for the millions of people around the world affected by diseases like cancer and Parkinson’s.
Every donation to Van Andel Institute goes directly to biomedical research into these diseases and their causes. Every gift supports K–12 and science education. And every dollar brings us one step closer to understanding diseases like cancer, Parkinson’s and more — and one step closer to saving lives.
Whatever your reasons for donating to Van Andel Institute — to bolster exploration of the biological origins of disease, to support innovative educational approaches, or to memorialize a loved one affected by disease — your support is essential to our mission. So please consider a gift today for what may be invaluable for humanity tomorrow.
