Salk Institute. The scientific research foundation is known for its namesake, the medical mind behind the cure for polio, Jonas Salk. Its other foundation was envisioned by the famed architect Louis Kahn. The Salk Institute is venerated as a place of both hope and beauty. When it comes to fundraising, the Salk Institute gives far more than it gets. Whether we created simple invitations for charitable functions, or materials supporting Alzheimer’s research, it just felt good to know we could help out a little.
