Together we can advance the science that advances the planet

Our Donors

From William Boyce Thompson’s keystone philanthropy in 1924 to the support we receive today, Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) science is made possible in part through the generosity of donors who appreciate the importance of basic research and its role to play in solving larger global issues.

We take this opportunity to thank and recognize the following individuals and organizations who have made gifts to BTI. To learn more about the benefits associated with giving to BTI, as well as designated opportunities, please contact Stephanie Meyer in our development office or call (607) 254-2923.
