The Jackson Laboratory

2023 Goals

Harness the power of predictive biology for a life free of disease; relentlessly pursue new ideas and new ways of thinking, learning and working together; expand our connections, our markets and our science around the world; improve quality, integration and optimization of processes, systems and technologies across JAX; position JAX as an employer of choice, promoting an exceptional employee experience and an environment that celebrates diversity of thought and inclusion of all people; and strengthen JAX’s long-term viability as a global nonprofit biomedical institution.

Community Impact

The Jackson Laboratory Volunteer Time Off program offers all employees two paid days per year for charitable activities in their community. JAX Community Volunteers are small groups of employees who work for a common cause including Heart of Maine United Way, American Cancer Society and the Alzheimer’s Association of Maine. JAX staff members serve on town councils, select boards and planning boards, and are involved in nonprofit organizations that support youth and families in issues including food insecurity, housing, public health, libraries and education. The JAX College Scholarship Program is supporting first-generation Maine college students pursuing a STEM degree.

Giving Opportunities

As a nonprofit biomedical research institution, The Jackson Laboratory can pursue new discoveries thanks in part to philanthropy. Support from donors impacts every facet of JAX’s work, from research initiatives and educational programs to recruiting and retaining the brightest minds. Gifts can help scientists advance treatments and cures for addiction, aging, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, neurological and immune disorders, rare diseases and more. JAX accepts gifts from companies that sponsor matching gift programs for their employees. Learn more about donating to JAX by emailing, calling (800) 474-9880 or visiting
