Get your name on LPI's new home

The new home for the Linus Pauling Institute is quickly taking shape! After several months of careful work on the basement level, the upper floors of the Linus Pauling Science Center are starting to appear. When finished in the summer of 2011, this state-of-the-art, 105,000-square-foot facility will bring the Linus Pauling Institute to a whole new level of excellence and dramatically enhance the legacy of Linus Pauling. To see our progress, please visit the live webcam.

There's still time for you to be a part of this turning point in the history of the Linus Pauling Institute—and to forever make your mark on its new home. By making a gift of $10,000 or more to support the institute's world-class research, your name will be added to the list of donors honored on a wall inside the building. Naming opportunities for offices, classrooms, and labs start at $25,000 and go up to $1 million, and pledges may be paid over five years.

Bequests are another great way you can join the legacy of Linus Pauling. When you designate a gift of $25,000 or more for the institute in your will, your generosity may be honored with a named space inside the building just like a gift that is made in full now. Please consider including LPI in your estate plans—suggested bequest language can be found here. For more information about naming opportunities in the Linus Pauling Science Center, contact Kevin Heaney at 541-737-5495 or email And, please remember, we appreciate gifts of any size to support LPI's work.

We are currently reviewing candidates who have applied for the LPI Director of Development position and will have news in the next newsletter.

LPI is grateful for the bequests we have received from the following friends this past year:
Grace Telenius Davis
Louise Marie Sorensen
