Why donate to the Linus Pauling Institute?

More than 45 years ago, Dr. Linus Pauling concluded that vitamins and other essential micronutrients play a significant role in enhancing health and preventing disease. Thus, in 1973 he co-founded the Linus Pauling Institute to carry out research in this field that he believed would be of enormous importance to public health.

Financial support to the Institute funds:

  • New discoveries in healthy aging, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases
  • Training the next generation of scientists with graduate student fellowships
  • Outreach programs like the Micronutrient Information Center


Student Fellowships

Endowed Graduate Fellowship programs allow students in a graduate program at the Linus Pauling Institute to learn more about the role of diet and supplements in achieving optimum health. These funds provide a vital lifeline to young researchers, placing them on the stable footing needed to become the next generation of scientists. 

Outreach and Education

The Micronutrient Information Center is the lead outreach program at the LPI. Since its debut in 2000, this website has been an open-access, online database of evidence-based information on the roles of vitamins, minerals, and other dietary factors in promoting health and preventing disease.

We are marking the Micronutrient Information Center's 20th anniversary with a celebration year round.

Dear Friends,

The Linus Pauling Institute is making new strides every day in the pursuit of living longer and better lives.
A gift of $5, $20, or $100 today means that our research in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals can continue.

Make an impact on global health – support us today.
