Neuroscience research requires substantial investment—particularly for the faculty and technologies that drive discovery and for seed funds necessary for groundbreaking research concepts. Philanthropic funding is critical, including private gifts to fund the kind of early-stage research that builds the foundation for federal and corporate funding.

You can help.  We invite you to make a gift to one of the Ryan Institute’s primary fund, The George & Anne Ryan Institute for Neuroscience Endowment. Gifts to the endowment are invested. Each year, the investment grows and a portion of the earned income is spent. As a donor to the Ryan Institute’s permanent endowment, you become part of URI’s future in perpetuity.

Questions about giving to the George and Anne Ryan Institute for Neuroscience? If you have questions, or wish to discuss specific areas for support, email Laura Evans, Senior Director of Development for the George & Anne Ryan Institute for Neurosciences, or call her at 401.874.2359.

All gifts are tax-deductible and managed by the URI Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. To accommodate giving preferences, contributions to the George & Anne Ryan Institute for Neuroscience may be given anytime as cash or securitiesreal estate or property or in the future in the form of an annuityremainder trust, or bequest.
