The Depot Project Capital Campaign
The Depot Project will restore and preserve a beloved, historic building for community use while providing a dedicated year-round facility for TSRC. The Depot, which TSRC currently is under contract to purchase from the Ah Haa School for the Arts, is a riverside property with a special sense of place that will foster international collaborations and nurture new ideas and innovative areas of research. The Depot will provide the necessary programming space to allow TSRC to expand its workshop programming by 50% and further TSRC's global impact on the advancement of science and technology. It is estimated to increase TSRC's annual total economic impact on the Telluride community from $12M to $18M. Contributions of all sizes are appreciated. No donation is too small.
For over thirty years, the young scientists who have participated in TSRC workshops have become the future of TSRC. The organization has established two scholarships, the Paul Barbara Fellowship and the Peter Salamon Award, that provide financial support to outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Telluride School on Theoretical Chemistry (TSTC) Endowment Fund
The Telluride School for Theoretical Chemistry (TSTC) is TSRC’s original, biennial graduate-level summer school, created to realize the vision of Jack Simons to provide fundamental training for future leaders of theoretical chemistry research and education. The TSTC Endowment Fund, which is now on the order of $350K, provides tuition and lodging support for its students and covers travel and lodging costs for its faculty. In order to provide the maximum benefit to TSTC students, the instructors believe that the school should be extended from a one-week to a two-week program. To cover the cost of an expanded TSTC, TSRC intends to grow the TSTC Endowment Fund to approximately $1.5M over a six-year period.
Please let us know if you would like your donation to be designated to a particular fund.
