Support the Caltech Associates Provost's Discretionary Fund
There is a new giving opportunity at Caltech: the Associates Provost's Discretionary Fund.
Looking to establish something that Associates could invest in—and that makes a difference in an area critical to the responsibilities of Provost David Tirrell—President's Circle members Ginger and Kim Caldwell created the fund in 2019. It assures that the provost can act quickly to support faculty priorities, nascent big ideas, and essential needs such as obtaining equipment to attract and hire top-notch scientists.
With some of the world's leading researchers, there is no shortage of brilliant ideas at Caltech. As Kim has said: "We want Caltech to be able to perform at its highest level of effectiveness. As a former executive, I'm well acquainted with the problem of wanting to do something but not having the funds soon enough to do it. Ginger and I don't want science to be slowed down by the turgid pace of budgeting and grant seeking."
