Throughout the course of our work, we encounter some regular questions from constituents that we have listed here. If there’s something you’d like to know, email us at info@lifesciencecares.org.

Can you help me plan a day of service for my company?

Yes! Life Science Cares can help you organize a meaningful and fun service opportunity for groups up to 250 people. From organizing an in-house collection of food to getting out in the community to serve meals, we can help design an experience that works for your team.

Why donate to Life Science Cares rather than directly to your partners?

When you invest in Life Science Cares, you’re supporting a portfolio of more than two dozen organizations working on the ground to improve the lives of our neighbors living in poverty. Your gift is paired with thousands of volunteer hours and over hundreds of thousands worth of donated goods annually. By investing in this network, your gift goes farther and has a stronger impact.

We’re also collecting data and best practices for what works and sharing this knowledge among our partners. Life Science Cares works alongside our nonprofit partners to identify their unique service needs and pair them with volunteers, whether it be for preparing meals or providing strategic marketing, legal, or other professional services. In many occasions, these are connections that nonprofits would not be able to access without our help. Our partner organizations are stronger and more resilient from our help.
