When you support APS, you become a part of our vision to have a positive impact on the lives of people — researchers, educators, students and the general public — benefitting from APS programs. Since membership dues cover only the cost of member services, APS programs rely in great part on donations from generous individuals like you.
Your choice to support us is a personal one, and we aim to offer many opportunities to give in a way that is meaningful to you.

Equity, access, and opportunity...
"Equity, access, and opportunity are the essential elements of support in contributing to student success along the STEM pathway. The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is a proud contributor to PhysicsQuest’s distribution of kits across underserved and underrepresented communities that provide high quality STEM teaching and learning resources to students who otherwise might not have such access."
- Alfred M. Mays, Director and Chief Strategist for Diversity and Education, Senior Program Officer – Burroughs Wellcome Fund
It takes a village...
"We noticed a lack of diversity within the physics community and knew that we wanted to help make this change be one of our family's philanthropic priorities. It takes a village to make these important changes and we are thrilled to be a part of that village."
- Kenton and Amy Brown
