Big News!

Lab-X Foundation has been selected to participate in GlobalGiving.org’s accelerator and fundraising program.  GlobalGiving is the largest global crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country.

This fundraising opportunity will allow us to sponsor many more interns to international research internships under our ‘Intern-Me’ program. In order to succeed, we must raise $5,000 from 40 donors by September 29th, 2017. If we meet this threshold, we will become GlobalGiving’s Life Time partner, which will open new doors for us to benefit from GlobalGiving’s corporate relationships, expose us to a new donor network, and provide access to dozens of online fundraising tools.

Help us reach that goal!
