Fundamental sciences contribute to all research, and impact our lives. Within less than 60 years, the Institute has won the battle of its founder, to become a Mecca for science by promoting freedom of research.
This original model needs you: the funding of the Institute, a private foundation in the public interest, depends largely on donor’s generosity.
Your support is essential.
The funds that have been endowed thanks to the generosity of the Institute’s donors now provides 18 % of IHES operating budget. Other philanthropic projects support an average 6 % per year. About a quarter of the Institute’s budget comes from the generosity of donors. IHES wishes to thank those generous contributors for their support.Making a gift
