As a global company, our community truly has no borders, so when it comes to getting involved, we try to give equitably among the myriad of worthy causes. We participate in various types of philanthropic work each year. We donate company funds and match the donations of our employees to groups that support wildlife preservation, supplies for displaced refugees, STEM education for students, childhood cancer research and more. We are constantly looking for opportunities to support our local community and connect with the larger life science community.
Science for a Better World
This year, we offered our own NIL grant of $50,000 to be divided among 10 promising junior or senior undergraduate researchers ($5,000 each). Our team believes that supporting people entering STEM fields as a profession is crucial to the future of innovative scientific research. We make it a point to mentor and support individuals that are early in their education and career. Meet the 10 students awarded with the Scientist.com STEM Research NIL Award and Scholarship in 2023.
At Scientist.com, we believe in the power of giving back. Every contribution, big or small, has the potential to create ripples of change in our world. As part of our commitment to making a positive impact, we're proud to partner with a diverse range of organizations dedicated to causes close to our hearts.

Scientist.com proudly extends its support to the Solana Beach Schools Foundation (SBSF). We've made significant contributions to SBSF over the years, aimed at bolstering the establishment of the new STREAM Technology and Art Discovery Labs at SkyLine Elementary School.
Women in STEM
In 2019, we proudly partnered with Women In Bio - Southern California to commemorate a century of Women in Science. This campaign was dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of 19 extraordinary women scientists that resulted in a contribution of $5,000 to WIB - Southern California.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Campaign
In 2022, we launched a social media campaign to help raise funds and general awareness for multiple Childhood Cancer Organizations. Through this initiative, we pledged to donate $1 for every engagement we received across our social media platforms.
Amidst the military strikes against Ukraine, we raised money to respond to the large and growing need for food, clothing and other essentials for the Ukrainian refugees. Scientist.com doubled the amount donated by employees, family and friends.
Touch a Truck Program
The Touch a Truck fundraiser is a fun and unique event for kids featuring a wide variety of vehicles, trucks & equipment for children to 'touch' & interact with. This event raises money for childhood cancer research. Scientist.com was proud to sponsor this special day in 2018.
Ecology Project International
Ecology Project International is an organization that creates positive long-term environmental impacts through its science-based education programs, conservation initiatives and engagement with local community partners. We were able to sponsor six underserved students with scholarships to attend EPI courses in Hawaii and Yellowstone.
Scientist.com and Local Craft Breweries Join Forces
Through collaborations with local craft breweries like Pizza Port and New Motion Beverages & Embolden Beer, Scientist.com helped foster a culture of innovation and connection within the community. These partnerships go beyond business, representing our commitment to supporting local businesses, nurturing talent and contributing to San Diego vibrant cultural identity. We believe that by building strong community ties, we can collectively achieve greatness.
Company Volunteer Opportunities

Through our collaboration with Feeding San Diego, our dedicated employees have joyfully volunteered their time to sort, package and distribute food to those in need locally.
