Areas of need for Chemistry include Chemistry Scholarships, Chemistry equipment, and the Chemistry General Fund for areas of greatest need. Areas of need for the Polymer Chemistry Program include Polymer Scholarships, Faculty Research or Teaching of Polymer Science, and the Polymer General Fund.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match all or a percentage of any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees, and/or spouses.  Check with your company about their matching gift policy or use our HEP Employer Matching Gift Program Database to find out if your company participates.  If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.

Other types of Gifts
