Welcome to the Corporate Philanthropic Partners program (CPP)! The Corporate Philanthropic Partners of the LSST Corporation is our way of recognizing businesses that have invested in the future of science. Through generous philanthropy, our CPPs have demonstrated their commitment to understanding the dynamic universe in which we live, and to search for that understanding through research from a diverse, and diversifying, cadre of researchers.
Our Corporate Philanthropic Partners are visionaries who see the potential in a data-driven, critical inquiry-based project. We are grateful for and applaud their support.
Being a member of the Corporate Philanthropic Partners connects businesses to the cutting-edge research being done around the world in support of LSST. With about 30 world-renowned institutions in membership, businesses will have access to the insights of multiple Research 1 Universities and laboratories.
You can impact research directly. Membership can bring opportunities to fund research projects, workshops and seminars, as well as graduate- and undergraduate education. Your company can have pride of place with your name and logo on sponsored events and calls-for-proposals.
Corporate support can be directed in many ways. See our membership levels and benefits here:
CPP has multiple levels of investment for business. Each brings its own direct impact on LSST-related research. Gifts from corporations at any level are appreciated. However, to be recognized as a CPP, a gift of $25,000 minimum is required. All Corporate Philanthropic Partners are reviewed by our Executive Board to ensure the partnership match is beneficial to both parties. For more information, please email Beth Willman, CEO and Director for Science, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Our Founding Corporate Philanthropic Partner, Wasabi Technologies, supported both LSSTC operations and a special enabling science grant of $25,000 for Amanda Wasserman at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Amanda is using that grant to develop methods for studying explosive phenomena in the Universe with the upcoming Legacy Survey of Space and Time. Learn more about Wasabi here.
