annual FUND


Gifts to the MBL ANNUAL FUND are typically given once each fiscal year (July 1st - June 30th), and are renewed annually by the donor.

The Annual Fund supplements income from investments, tuition, fees, and grants to provide:

  • Financial aid to MBL students
  • Facilities updates, maintenance, and repair
  • Upgrades to computer, internet, and communications capabilities 
  • The basics: heat, light, power, and support services

Gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted, and can be used to support a wide range of research, education, or operational needs of the laboratory. This enables us to cover costs not met by grants or fees, seed key strategic initiatives, provide important bridge funding, and support general laboratory operations.

Your contribution to the MBL Annual Fund gives us the flexibility to build new programs, meet emerging needs, and seed key strategic initiatives. A strong Annual Fund makes possible the margin of excellence gained from nimble responses to a rapidly changing scientific environment and ensures a measure of stability when investment portfolios fluctuate.
