Our Mission

The American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science, founded in 1944, develops philanthropic support for the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, one of the world’s premier scientific research institutions. The Weizmann Institute is a center of basic multidisciplinary scientific research and graduate study, addressing crucial problems in technology, medicine and health, energy, agriculture, and the environment.

The American Committee is a national community of dedicated volunteers and professional staff who share a common vision with the Institute in advancing science for the benefit of humanity, and in strengthening Israel through science and technology. The American Committee engages in various activities in order to develop philanthropic funds for the Weizmann Institute from individuals, families, foundations, and the business community; educates the American public about the Institute’s research; and represents the Institute’s interests in the U.S. Through their generous philanthropy, the American Committee’s supporters become partners with Weizmann Institute scientists in the search for answers to the most difficult challenges facing humanity. Together, the American Committee, other committees throughout the world, and the Weizmann Institute comprise a flourishing humanitarian enterprise dedicated to improving the quality of life for all humankind through scientific research.
