Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We provide the following to those who share our passion for advancing medicine:

​Scholarships to undergraduates studying in the life sciences and medicine
Grants to graduate school students to cover research expenses
Support for entrepreneurial endeavors in translating laboratory discoveries

We raise funds primarily through our website. Our plan is to use additional fundraising activities such as product sales and events.

We have access to various promotional products and apparel decorators to help us create and promote our products for fundraising activities.

We have raised approximately $6,000 towards our goal of establishing scholarships. We plan to increase awareness of our website and our mission through social media campaigns. We also plan to sell products for fundraising activities.
