Overview:

Please note that we do not accept unsolicited grant proposals. Because of our tightly-defined grantmaking strategies, many worthwhile projects fall outside the scope of our funding priorities. However, if you have thoughts or inquiries related to our work that you would like to share, you may send us a brief, ~100-word email. Please understand that due to the volume of inquiries we receive, we are only able to commit to reviewing those inquiries that adhere to the ~100-word guideline.

Major advances in science, technology and education come from focused efforts to address a specific problem or question in science.

Our ability to take risks and make long-term and relatively large commitments often allow us to undertake challenges not accessible to many other organizations.

We support seismological research underpinning the Earthquake Early Warning system, which can detect initial signals from a distant earthquake and provide warning of shaking tens of seconds to minutes before destruction begins, allowing people and property to be secured and protected. Warnings would be issued across computers, cell phones, radios, TVs and other systems with broad reach to the public.
