Thank you for considering a gift to the Materials Characterization Facility.

Private philanthropy is an important part of fulfilling our mission to provide researchers with high quality instrumentation and data. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated and are used to support a wide range of services, including innovative faculty research, instrument acquisitions, and utilization grants. Supporting the MCF also enables a variety of outreach opportunities, including tours and sample analysis demonstrations for high school groups and analytical chemistry classes from smaller colleges.
