Create Your Legacy

What will your legacy be?

Jack Whitehead left the first planned gift to the Institute with a bequest to provide long term financial stability to pursue cutting edge biomedical research. Today, others have followed in his footsteps. Investing in the future of medical research means an investment in all of humanity. This generosity has helped young scientists who are Whitehead Fellows oversee their own labs and pursue an independent research agenda building the next generation of scientific leaders. For principal investigators, it has meant pursuing new concepts and technologies that will offer hope for diagnoses and therapies in cancer, depression, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
