Philanthropy at the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing

The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is the leading alternatives center in the United States, recognized internationally for its efforts to promote the development of alternative methods in research, product safety testing and education. Founded in 1981, CAAT has an unparalleled record for bringing together and achieving consensus among diverse groups with often divergent interests regarding the use of animals in research and testing. CAAT is dedicated to the advancement of humane science—for the benefit of both animals and people.

We have made great strides over the past three decades, and are working to bring about even greater changes for the future. But we need your help. As part of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, CAAT depends on gifts and grants from industry, foundations and individual donors to continue its important work.

We invite you to join us in our work to enhance animal welfare and improve the quality of science. Gifts to CAAT can be made in many ways, for many different purposes:

  • Support may be made as an outright gift, a pledge payable over three-to-five years, a life-income gift or a bequest
  • Gifts can be made in the form of cash, appreciated securities, real estate or personal property
  • Contributions may be made for general support (unrestricted) or to a specific area or CAAT program
  • Gifts can be made in honor or memory of someone, and to celebrate occasions

Contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code.
