Jim loved mathematics, science research, and education. In lieu of gifts or flowers, the Simons family asks that well-wishers consider a donation to one of these groups; all in their own way are advancing the frontiers of mathematics and the basic sciences. Jim would have also been very happy for donations in his honor to go to any other organizations meaningful to the donor that promote mathematics, science research, and/or education.
