Our annual Golf Classic is our signature fundraiser that brings together industry professionals to enjoy a day of golf and support biotech education and workforce development. This year, our event will look different but will still provide an opportunity to give back to the community. MassBioEd's 2020 Comedy Classic features renowned comedian Jimmy Tingle, and rising star, Corey Rodrigues, offering a great way to kick back, relax, and enjoy an afternoon virtual show of entertaining comedy from local talents. Invite your friends! Share the Comedy Classic Invite.

Because this is a FREE event, we invite you to make a donation to support our work with teachers in high-need school districts to prepare for the 2020-2021 academic year during the pandemic. Our Aligned Curricular and Career Experiences for Secondary Science (ACCESS) Program supports teachers as they integrate vertically aligned, hands-on life science lessons and college and career experiences across grades 6-12. ACCESS ensures that, over the course of 4-5 years, students will have multiple meaningful, life sciences experiences that build upon past lessons. Help us impact 15,000 students during the 2020-2021 academic school year through inquiry-based lab activities and career exploration programs.

How to contribute:
1. Make a donation online.
2. Text the word "massbioed" to the number 243725.

  • Donations of $500 or more will receive a donation package that includes designed masks, test tube mints, a water bottle, and a UV phone sanitizer with a wireless charging pad.

All proceeds from this virtual event benefit the MassBioEd's mission to build and sustain a strong, diverse workforce in the life sciences. The pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of the life sciences. As we continue to develop and integrate on-line programs for teachers, students and schools, the need to educate the next generation of scientists, promote career opportunities within the industry to under-served communities, and bring in new skilled workers is more important than ever. 

We are committed to meeting this challenge and hope you will join us.
