Thank You for Supporting Your CCST Science Fellows on #GivingTuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday — a day each year when we are especially proud to wear our identity as a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization. As a nonprofit, CCST relies on the support of philanthropic individuals and foundations to sustain our operations — and we are grateful to all who have.

When you support our CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellowship program, you help train PhD scientists to become policy-savvy staffers who directly advise California state legislators.

Gifts of all sizes help offset costs for our training boot camp and for professional development throughout a fellowship year. A $50 donation can help us print print business cards for new fellows. A $100 donation can help us prepare materials for our Mock Hearing simulation. A $500 donation can help send a CCST Science Fellow on conference travel to broaden their network and reach.

To all who have donated, and to all who have helped inspire a prospective fellow or connected CCST with a philanthropic friend — thank you for helping us make California’s policies stronger with science!
