Challenge Grants

The Donna and Paul Flower Challenge
This challenge was instituted to inspire new contributions to the Flower Hall for Research and Innovation at the School of Science and Engineering. The new 24,000 square foot, four-story facility on Tulane's Uptown campus will help Tulane to continue attracting the best students and offer them the most innovative environment to complete research linked to energy, health, and the environment. The laboratories will be interdisciplinary and will result in a "center of excellence" that capitalizes on Tulane's integrated science and engineering curriculum.

Please consider donating to this important project to help Tulane complete the next wave of scientific and engineering innovations. Make your gift online.

All outright contributions, multi-year pledges and gifts of securities will help fulfill the $800,000 Flower Hall Challenge Grant, and several prominent naming opportunities exist beginning at $25,000. All supporters of the project of $1,000 and above will be recognized in the building on a permanent Donor Wall. To find out more, please visit Donna and Paul Flower Hall.
