Give to the Unexpected
Announcing the upcoming launch of Weizmann Canada’s 2019 fall fundraising campaign

In our brand new 2019 fall campaign we are focusing on the unexpected relationships, discoveries and connections that contribute to research that is changing the world.

We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of Weizmann Canada’s fall fundraising campaign: Give to the Unexpected.  

Living and working in the same place, researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science are brought together in unique and meaningful ways. Because of this — and thanks to support from our donors — world changing breakthroughs are happening in surprising and unexpected ways every single day at Weizmann. 

Sometimes a chance encounter with a stranger can lead to an idea that builds on a conversation you once had with a colleague at the playground. That conversation leads to an unlikely collaboration and manifests itself into an unexpected result. 

“Do you know the connection between zombies and heart repair? Or how chalk can save the planet? Have you heard about how a scratch made conception possible, or how a plant taught us about treating cancer? ”

Thanks to the support of donors, our scientists have seen the results of their research used to develop new drugs, technology, and algorithms that have changed the world. 

For 55 years Weizmann Canada has supported the work being done at the Weizmann Institute thanks to help from our philanthropic partners. In that time unexpected things have led to thousands of breakthroughs.  

Do you know the connection between zombies and heart repair? Or how chalk can save the planet? Have you heard about how a scratch made conception possible, or how a plant taught us about treating cancer?  

Keep an eye on your mailbox for a personal letter and small booklet that we’ve created for our closest supporters that share these stories of the unexpected
