Ellen Browning Scripps Circle

About the Ellen Browning Scripps Circle

The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) owes its existence to the many innovators, collaborators and philanthropists who have come together as champions for medical research. Chief among them is Ellen Browning Scripps, who founded TSRI in 1924. Her generous foundational gift served as the catalyst that has since led to TSRI becoming a world leader in medical research.

Today we honor the legacy of Ellen Browning Scripps by introducing the Ellen Browning Scripps Circle at TSRI.

The Ellen Browning Scripps Circle at TSRI is comprised of donors whose significant and sustained support profoundly impacts the institute. It was established to recognize donors who give $1,000 or more annually to benefit the life-changing research happening at TSRI. Members include individual donors, foundations and corporations who believe and invest in the promise that basic medical research has to transform health and save lives

Ellen Browning Scripps Membership Advantages
