Gifts to the NAS Annual Fund, the NAE Independent Fund, and the IOM Annual Fund are among the most valuable because they provide the necessary resources to initiate timely, important activities and to expand dissemination of recommendations to a broader audience for greater impact. Unrestricted gifts not only help to sponsor symposia, roundtables, lectures, and forums on critical, national issues but they also allow us to publish journals and proceedings from conferences and workshops.
These unrestricted funds enable the NAS, NAE and IOM to tackle the right questions at the right time and effectively communicate the results to the right people.
Your gift to an endowment fund provides permanent financial support. Highlighted below are just three of many worthwhile programs that could use your assistance.
Mirzayan Fellowship Program Endowment
Giving to the Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program of the NAS, NAE and IOM allows you to invest in a vital, career-building experience where scholars learn how science, engineering, and medical research influence sound public policy.
Staff Fellow Endowments
Endowing a Staff Fellow offers visible recognition for you, as the donor, and enables the National Academies to recognize a distinguished member of our staff by awarding a named position. Please call (202) 334-2431 for more information.
CHR's Unrestricted Endowment Fund
The Committee on Human Rights (CHR) of the NAS, NAE and IOM began its work in 1976 by publicly denouncing the unjust treatment of eight scientific colleagues in Argentina, Uruguay, and the Soviet Union. Thirty-five years later, thousands of appeals have been made and more than 1,000 cases have been resolved. You can leave a lasting humanitarian legacy to the Committee and, thus, to persecuted scientists around the world with your gift to the CHR Unrestricted Endowment Fund.
