Support the Alda Center

Founded in 2009 by actor, writer, and activist Alan Alda, the Alda Center for Communicating Science inspires and empowers researchers to share the wonder of science with the world.

Alda Center training and academic programs help scientists understand and respond to the needs of others. Without trust and engagement, communication is a lecture, not a conversation.

The Alda Center empowers dialogue, even when the audience is quiet.

Scientific discoveries impact every aspect of our lives, as individuals and as a society. 

The Alda Center makes effective science communication possible by empowering researchers to connect with other scientists, students, members of the media, policymakers, friends and family, and others.

Support the Alda Center in this critically important goal to help scientists share the wonder of their work with the rest of us.
