Our program depends on external funding to be able to function. Most of our work is supported by grants from the government, as well as grants from foundations and industry partners.
Private donations help meet funding needs that are not otherwise covered by these existing grants. they help support our mission, help keep staff employed, and help contribute to our efforts to reach out to the local and national community.
With this in mind, please consider supporting our program. Since the University is a nonprofit organization, donations are tax-deductible. There are three types of donations:
1. GENERAL SUPPORT
These donations are considered "unrestricted gifts" and go to areas where they are most needed. They help support our mission and the Sleep and Health Research Program can direct these resources to help us respond most rapidly to to unanticipated or emergent demands. Contact us to find out more.
2. SPECIAL PURPOSE / TARGETED SUPPORT
These donations help to support specific programs or projects. They can be used to increase support for an ongoing project or they could help fund a new initiative. Either way, you can specifically direct how these funds are appropriated. Contact us to find out more.
3. ENDOWED FUNDS
These represent one of the most powerful ways that you can support our work. Since the funds are endowed, they contribute in perpetuity. Furthermore, you can direct how these funds are spent. Since they are endowed, they can be named in your honor or in the honor of someone that you wish. Contact us to find out more.
