At Viracor Eurofins, we know success is sweet, but sharing it is even sweeter. We are serious about sharing our success, not because we feel we have to, but simply because we want to. Our philanthropic endeavors naturally extend to the scientific communities; we focus on organ donation education, promoting scientific education and career exploration, as well as providing job shadowing opportunities for college students.

Gift of Life
Viracor Eurofins promotes organ donation education by supporting Gift of Life, a Kansas City based nonprofit organization that educates to increase awareness of the urgent need for organ and tissue donation. Throughout the years, Viracor Eurofins has volunteered associates' time and expertise, and provided monetary support for various endeavors, such as creating a television commercial to promote its efforts. Each holiday season, Viracor Eurofins makes a donation to Gift of Life in the name of each of our clients. To learn more about the Gift of Life visit http://www.giftdonor.com.

Young Scientists
Viracor Eurofins promotes scientific education and careers through our Young Scientist Program. Our scientists frequently give talks at area high schools to generate interest and excitement in science. Viracor Eurofins recruits local high school students with an aptitude for science and math and spends a day in the laboratory with them, teaching them about molecular based science and infectious diseases. Each semester, students from the University of Kansas Molecular Diagnostic Department spend one week in the laboratory gaining real world experience in a diagnostic laboratory environment, working directly with Viracor Eurofins' clinical scientists.

Community Compassion
Viracor Eurofins opens its heart to those in need with the same enthusiasm we apply to our business. Each month, Viracor Eurofins selects two associate's favorite charity in which to donate. Our associates have embraced Viracor Eurofins' compassionate environment and have made traditions of their own; for example, adopting families during the holiday season to ensure they have food, clothing, and gifts, sending Girl Scout cookies to soldiers overseas, and walking as a team in the Multiple Sclerosis Walk, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night walk, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for a Cure.
