The highly credible work conducted by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and Institute of Medicine (IOM) provides policymakers with the sound, nonpartisan research necessary to address polarizing issues.
Bridging the gaps in knowledge. Your gift allows us to initiate groundbreaking projects and disseminate significant reports, vital to our nation's future but lacking federal sponsorship. Your support enables us to create and share knowledge and educate the public so that individuals can make informed decisions on issues that directly affect their lives. Your generous contribution today not only affirms the importance of our work but is necessary for us to continue to address and tackle key issues involving science, engineering, and medicine.
The National Academy of Sciences enhances the general public's understanding and appreciation of sound science, as it directly relates to daily life. Your gift to the NAS Annual Fund allows the Academy to place greater focus on innovative work that cuts across disciplinary boundaries and to address and answer some of the most important scientific challenges facing society today.
The National Academy of Engineering provides independent, objective advice to the nation on engineering-related topics and policies. Your contribution to the Independent Fund helps the NAE to assess the technological needs of our community, at home and abroad, and to sponsor research, programs, and activities to meet those critical needs head on.
The Institute of Medicine plays a vital role in providing our nation with a strong and reliable voice on health and health care. Your support of the Annual Fund helps to more effectively communicate the IOM's unbiased and highly credible advice on subjects such as prevention, nutritional standards, workforce needs, research to improve health, along with health care quality and value.
The Presidents' Circle is a group of people who, in addition to having established outstanding careers in diverse fields, share an interest in the broad interplay of science, engineering, and medicine, and who recognize and value the significance of these disciplines to our economy, the quality of our lives, and our international position. The Presidents’ Circle is an honorary association. Membership is by invitation from the presidents of the NAS, NAE and IOM.
