Most of Beakerhead is wild and free! Your donation is much needed to keep it that way!

Topic for today: The problem of attraction (in a science-y way)
There is a natural human tendency to surround ourselves with people much like ourselves. We tend to form groups based on similarities. We amplify this sameness in schools and workplaces by streaming people into specialties.
Somewhere along the way, this leads to social friction.
So we need programs that reduce social friction. There are heaps of advantages to reducing natural social friction. It makes it possible to move forward on problems. Research shows it also forms strong companies and thriving economies.
And that’s what Beakerhead does.
The goodness of Beakerhead is made possible in part by donations from people like you.
More than ever, we need your help. Government grants are shrinking, while the need to counterbalance natural social friction is increasing.
Your donation will receive a tax receipt, as Beakerhead is a registered charity.

Total Fundraising Goal
INSPIRE A CHILD: Send a parent to Beakernight. Kids are free but they need a hand to hold!
KICKSTART A CAREER: Contribute to education programs for students. Think of these as “Future-in-Residence” programs!
MAKE A PROJECT POSSIBLE: Purchase materials for an installation like a “neuroscience photo booth” or “intergalactic travel bureau.” All builds are created and presented by community members who need help with purchasing materials and supplies.
$50 - $75
PROVIDE STABILITY: These are precarious times for charities. Beakerhead does not come across as an essential social safety yet and it could not be more important to the well being of future Calgary, Alberta and Canada. Core donors who understand the cause are truly, deeply appreciated.
$10,000 and up
