Giving Tuesday is Dec. 3Help RAIN Incubator become self-sustaining RAIN brings science to life. With generous contributions from the community, RAIN continues to bring science, technology, and jobs to Tacoma. RAIN is an innovation core where students graduating from Tacoma-area schools are being trained for high paying jobs. RAIN is committed to bringing people from all backgrounds to the world of science. RAIN provides training to fill the gap from university to “workforce ready” and teach the skills desired by biotechnology and healthcare companies. By providing life science companies the talent and space they need to thrive, RAIN is sparking the growth of a biotech industry in Tacoma and providing living wage jobs in sustainable industries.
On a path to self-
RAIN Incubator: Life science companies provide revenue by leasing our space and contracting our services. They support our mission by mentoring students and including their expertise to our training.
RAIN Research: These grants provide funding to support our educational mission and our laboratory needs. Grants for research projects give our students hands-on lab experience and job training readying them for contract work.
RAIN Contracts: RAIN offers services to larger companies, organizations, and government agencies. These contracts can fund the majority of RAIN’s operations and they provide paid jobs for our students who have been trained through our other programs.
RAIN is still in the critical start-up phase and needs your support. The sources of revenue above are growing every day and RAIN expects to be self-sustaining within the next five years. To offer your support, donate at https://tinyurl.com/voxwsjg.
