Windows of Opportunity

Giving Opportunity

If you've been touched by the stories in this issue of Emory Magazine, these windows can open up ways for you to turn your inspiration into action. Here you'll see how you can invest in the people, places, and programs found in these pages and beyond. Gifts to Emory produce powerful, lasting returns; they help create knowledge, advance research, strengthen communities, improve health, and much more.


Creating a Healthier Future

At Emory’s Yerkes National Primate Research Center, new director Paul Johnson is helping lead efforts to develop an HIV vaccine. The center’s researchers also collaborate on other infectious disease research and are increasing ties with neuroscience and psychiatric research within the Woodruff Health Sciences Center. Gifts to the Yerkes Fund for Excellence help open new avenues of research, educate and train promising young scientists, and engage the public more fully in the center’s work. Support Yerkes with a gift today.


Raising Renaissance Scholars

The Laney Graduate School offers students like Fahamu Pecou 16PhD the opportunity to merge their creativity, curiosity, and research in innovative ways that challenge perceptions and advance scholarship. This flexibility produces Renaissance-like scholars in science and humanities. Make a gift to support graduate programs today.


Bearing Witness

Through the Georgia Cold Cases Project and the website, the Center for Digital Scholarship connects the public with Emory students’ original research into unresolved civil rights cases. Distinctive digital resources like this are a hallmark of model research libraries. Support the center and other innovative libraries initiatives through the University Libraries Fund for Excellence today.


Stoking Students' Passion for Research

Many students choose Emory for the variety, depth, and accessibility of research opportunities, and their curiosity is ignited by innovative classes. Donor gifts support student research through two avenues: Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE), a nationally recognized program with a twenty-five-year record of training undergraduates in leading-edge science research; and Scholarly Inquiry and Research at Emory (SIRE), which promotes undergraduate research projects through grants, faculty-student research partnerships, and summer research stipends. You can invest in Emory's undergraduate researchers today

Pooling Resources


With eighteen national championships, including the most recent women’s swimming and diving title, Emory has one of the most successful NCAA Division III athletic programs. Donor gifts can support individual varsity, club, and intramural teams and strengthen the student-athlete experience. Contribute to the Swim and Dive Endowment Fund today. 

Sustaining Emory

Emory’s WaterHub, the innovative new facility expected to save Emory more than 110 million gallons of water annually, is just one of Emory’s many efforts that perform double duty: It supports a healthy, safe, and environmentally sustainable campus and enhances educational experiences for  students. Invest in Emory's Sustainability Initiatives Fund today.
