The Weizmann League
Bringing together tomorrow’s philanthropic leaders – today.

Join a league of leaders who are working together to promote science for the benefit of humanity. The Weizmann League empowers young professionals to help advance transformative research at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel. The Weizmann Institute is committed to recruiting the brightest young minds in science, and here in Canada, we’re just as dedicated to recruiting the brightest young minds in the business and philanthropic communities. Together, Weizmann League members partner with the Institute and with one another to ensure a brighter future for all of humanity.

Inspiring future philanthropic leaders

The Weizmann League comes together for educational experiences, networking opportunities with like-minded passionate individuals, and fundraising in support of the Weizmann Institute of Science. Through special programs and events, Weizmann League members learn about the Weizmann Institute’s ground-breaking work and have opportunities to meet trailblazing scientists fighting cancer and other diseases, protecting the planet and advancing technology for the benefit of all of humanity.

Create unique and interesting programs, networking events and fundraisers that connect young professionals with one another and with Weizmann.
