Together We Can Grow and Support Our Physics Community

You can help make a positive impact on the lives of people — researchers, educators, students and the general public — benefitting from APS programs. The Society’s membership dues are applied only to the cost of member services, and APS programs rely in great part on donations from generous individuals like you.

Your gift of any amount will make a difference. Please consider a donation of $50, $100, $250 or more. Your support of our mission to help advance the knowledge of physics is greatly appreciated by the Society.
