In addition to personal and customized advising, the Alliance develops tools to inform philanthropists about historic discoveries in basic science and to give examples of compelling research opportunities where patient, persistent and nimble private funding can make a significant impact.
We encourage philanthropists to use these resources to expand their knowledge of funding opportunities that explore basic scientific questions. The XO Files are eXtraordinary Opportunities that are both fundable in their own right, and are examples of the kind of big ideas where private funding can seed new projects. There are many institutions world-wide that excel in basic science, and a selection of those are highlighted here.
