The Caltech Fund is grateful to all donors who make the Institute a philanthropic priority. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends provide funding to continue to attract and retain top tier faculty, make undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships available to talented students, expand enriching student life programming, and provide the flexibility that enables the Institute to immediately seize opportunities and address concerns..
The 1891 Society and Caltech Fund Catalysts are designed to honor those donors who offer extraordinary levels of support, either by giving each and every year without fail or by making leadership-level gifts through the Caltech Fund. We invite you to join one or both of these important groups.
Caltech Fund Catalysts
The ambitions of Caltech's students and faculty are continually growing, and the resources required to achieve them must grow, too. We are grateful to the individuals who support these innovators and investigators each year by making gifts through the Caltech Fund at the highest levels.
