Leadership Circle

APS is grateful for each of the gifts and pledges received in support of its mission to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics for the benefit of our scientific community and society at large. Since membership dues cover the cost of member services only, APS depends in large part on contributions to provide vital programs in the areas of Education and Diversity, Public Engagement, Government Affairs, International Affairs, Honors, and the Matching Membership Program. Charitable support to APS is truly an investment in the future of physics.

While every gift of any amount is greatly appreciated, the APS Leadership Circle recognizes donors whose lifetime giving has exceeded $100,000 (based on APS's most complete records). Through our Leadership Circle, we are honored to recognize these individuals and organizations who have generously demonstrated their commitment to the future of APS.
