Leadership Circle

Recognizing donors for lifetime giving exceeding $100,000

Thank you to our Leadership Circle members

We are grateful to our Leadership Circle members.

Through our Leadership Circle, APS is honored to recognize individuals and organizations who have generously demonstrated their commitment to both APS's future and the physics community.

The Leadership Circle is our opportunity to express gratitude to donors whose lifetime giving has exceeded $100,000, based on our most complete records.

As a membership organization, APS collects dues that cover the cost of member services only. To sustain our vital initiatives advancing physics to benefit humanity, we depend in a large part on contributions from individuals and organizations. The charitable support from our Leadership Circle donors is truly an investment in the future of physics.
