Instrument Donation Program

Reminder: Businesses and medical facilities within the Milwaukee section are reminded of the Instrument Donation program run through the Chemical Education Committee. Through this program used but functional instruments can be donated to local high schools (or in certain cases, colleges or universities) to be used as teaching tools in the laboratory. Desired instruments include visual, UV and IR spectrometers, GCs, HPLCs, etc as well as ground glassware and other common items. Some local schools receive less than $100 per year as their chemistry budget and with the cuts being made in Madison, this amount is likely to decrease further. Donated materials are offered first to schools in the immediate vicinity of the donating firm and then to other programs in the section. You may contact Tony Antony ( for more details or to offer a donation. Donations are tax deductible.
