Join WCBR’s GivingTuesday campaign on november 30th to support the Travel Fellowship Fund!

WHAT: GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. 

This year, Winter Conference on Brain Research is partnering with GivingTuesday for a special cause – supporting the growth and development of young investigators within the neuroscience community. Funds donated throughout November and on GivingTuesday will go directly to support travel fellowships for WCBR attendees.

WHY: WCBR provides travel fellowships each year to support the attendance of junior investigators. In particular, these awards encourage the participation of first-time attendees. Many of the recipients return to the conference for years and even decades, ensuring the continued success of the meeting. This year, WCBR is focused on providing more support than ever to junior investigators whose careers have been negatively affected by COVID-19. Funding travel fellowships is a critical step in aiding young professionals who are struggling with organizational funding or securing growth opportunities.

HOW: Save the date! Mark your calendars for November 30 and join in with the WCBR community to drive donations on GivingTuesday. Donations can be made below using the form. You can also donate to the Travel Fellowship Fund during registration for WCBR 2022. All donations collected during November will go directly toward the GivingTuesday campaign to support the Travel Fellowship Fund.

Please consider donating to the Travel Fellowship Fund on GivingTuesday to provide support to investigators in the first chapters of their careers. Your generosity and contributions are the key to the enduring success of the WCBR meeting and community. Without you, WCBR would not be possible.

Thank you for your dedication to the Winter Conference on Brain Research. Your in-kind donations of time, energy, and intellect give this meeting its invigorating vibe. Your financial contributions in any dollar amount allow this meeting to weather the global pandemic and other catastrophes that may befall us. Every year, travel fellowships depend on your support. On occasion, endowment donations sustain memories of great neuroscientists who have gone before us. This year, submissions to a general fund will enable our meeting organization to maintain a strong financial footing in otherwise uncertain times. Please read below for more details on travel fellowships and endowments, then complete the form below to submit your much-appreciated donation.

Travel Fellowships

Each year we provide travel fellowships supporting the attendance of junior investigators. In particular, these awards encourage the participation of first-time attendees. Many of the recipients return to the conference for years and even decades, ensuring the continued success of the meeting. We bestow the highest-ranked Travel Fellow with the Ann Kelley Travel Award. This is a superior honor and memorializes a great leader in the field of neuroscience. We are pleased to announce the addition of the Conan Kornetsky Travel Award in honor of his great contributions to the field of psychopharmacology.  We raise funds for these fellowships through generous support from private donations, federal grants, and industry sources. Therefore, please consider donating to the travel fellowship fund to help us provide the best support to investigators at the first chapters of their careers who we hope will become continued active participants in the Winter Brain community. Your generosity is the key to the enduring success of our meeting.

Endowment Donations

Donations of any size will help fund the next generation of neuroscientists and are greatly appreciated. To permanently fund a travel award, a gift of at least $50,000.00 is required. This amount might change in future years. If you would like the WCBR Executive Committee to approve a named award in honor or memory of a WCBR attendee who has made a significant impact on brain research, please consider donating $1,000 for each year this named award should endure (with a minimum $5,000 donation required for a named award).

For your own legacy to live on at the meeting, consider supporting WCBR in your estate planning. The donor will be responsible for providing written documentation stating the purpose for the donation and any restrictions that accompany the donation. WCBR reserves the right to refuse any gift that is not consistent with the WCBR mission and purpose, or if unacceptable restrictions are placed on the gift. Donations will be deposited into an investment fund, to be determined at that time, which allows the best return on investment while still protecting the principal.

If you would like to endow a travel award or scientific award, please contact WCBR’s Executive Office at info@winterbrain.org.  Thank you for supporting the progress of neuroscience in such an important way.

Thanks for supporting WCBR!
