About the AIP Foundation

The physical sciences are at the core of what we do.

AIP Foundation is an independent not-for-profit corporation, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization (tax ID #83-4485064), with the American Institute of Physics Inc. (AIP) as the sole member of the corporation.

AIP Foundation was launched in 2020 to generate philanthropic support to deepen and share the history and importance of the physical sciences throughout the world, and to motivate and encourage a new generation of scientists.

AIP Foundation provides support to three areas within the American Institute of Physics, focused on History Programs, Library, and Student Programs.
