    Here are some of the ways we use your contributions:

    • Outreach to families at museums, libraries, and our annual Chemistry Day event. A $50 donation can provide materials for a meaningful hands-on chemistry experience for over 200 children.

    • Summer chemistry jobs for economically disadvantaged high school students via ACS’ well-established Project SEED. 100% of Project SEED donations help pay Chicago-area students to work in local research laboratories in this highly effective program.
    • Support for Minority Chemists, Women Chemists, Senior Chemists, and Younger Chemists.
