Make a Financial Gift

The Department of Biological Sciences at Clemson University advances knowledge in biology and microbiology through discovery, learning and engagement with the community. Our remarkable faculty and students address all levels of biological study from molecules to ecosystems. We study how organisms reproduce, develop, and combat disease – from the smallest of microbes to the largest of mammals. Our work provides the foundation for discoveries that extend life and maintain the health of our planet.

Through philanthropic gifts to our department, you allow us to keep our research and teaching facilities up to date, recruit and retain excellent and diverse faculty and students, develop biological literacy in the community and broader society, support new discovery and learning initiatives, and create a welcoming and accepting environment for all. Your support also helps provide inquiry-based experiences for our students, send students to research field sites and conferences where they conduct and communicate their research, bring hands-on learning activities to the community, and so much more.
