Our Donors

For more than 80 years, Weizmann scientists have been dreaming of a better world, and donor support has fueled their research every step of the way.

In 2018, the Weizmann Institute of Science was ranked 6th in Nature’s international roster of the world’s top 200 research institutions measuring the impact of science on society, the only institute outside the US to make the top 10 list. Weizmann Canada’s committed and passionate donors enable our scientists to fly—all the way to top of the charts.

Canadian support continues to fuel ground-breaking science and leave a lasting impression on the Weizmann Institute campus.
