Gladstone Foundation

Established in 2011, the Gladstone Foundation is a nonprofit that is separate and independent from the Gladstone Institutes—but is dedicated to accelerating our research.

Led by Board Chair William S. Price III and Vice Chair William K. Bowes, the Foundation’s Board of Directors is made up of unsurpassed leaders in science, industry, investment, public affairs, and philanthropy. Serving on the Board provides a meaningful way to help reduce the burden of disease around the globe, and sometimes in members’ own families. 

In addition to providing financial support to Gladstone, the Foundation works in concert with our President’s Council to act as strategic advisors and as Gladstone ambassadors to the community and the nation.

Gladstone is focused on solving the most important diseases to the human race. They’re not just looking at incremental change or managing a condition, they’re looking at eliminating the disease within a reasonable time frame. And they know that to be innovative you have to break through established lanes. You have to go out on a limb.
