Sensing the Future

A Campaign for Monell

Inviting you to support the perfect match of mission, expertise, and opportunity.

This fundraising initiative propels the Center into our next half-century of discovery. Through this campaign, we are raising funds to improve health and well-being by advancing the scientific understanding of taste, smell, and related senses.

The campaign will be successful through gifts of all sizes! You can play a vital role. Consider becoming a part of the 1968 Alliance, named for Monell’s founding year.  Members give $1968 over a three year period and get recognized in campaign materials.

Three urgent priorities are driving our Sensing the Future Campaign:

Advancing Sensory Nutrition

Monell will unite sensory and nutrition experts—a unique and timely marriage of two disciplines—to improve diet and nutritional health and give us new ammunition to fight obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Finding Cures for the Loss of Smell

Anosmia, the total loss of smell, affects roughly 2.5 million Americans and millions more worldwide. Many more experience a partial loss of this vital sense, particularly as they age. With the tools and knowledge available today, it becomes possible to find cures that will bring hope to those struggling with this invisible yet devastating disability.

Investing in Research Infrastructure

Great science requires both talented researchers and powerful research tools. We will invest in new analytical and imaging equipment and expert scientific support to insure the next 50 years of cutting-edge discoveries.

We are delighted to share that at the close of the 2019-2020 year, we are 84 percent of the way to our fundraising goal. Because of this strong support in the early stages of the campaign, we are well on our way to reaching our goals.

If you have not yet made a commitment to the campaign and would like to discuss a gift, please contact Jenifer Trachtman, Director of Development, at 267-519-4715 or jtrachtman@monell.org.
