The first $25,000 donated to the Institute of Medicine on 12/10 will be matched. With collective action we can make an enduring impact for the NAS and IOM on 12/10!
The National Academy of Sciences independent, authoritative advice has been the basis for some of our nation's finest achievements for over 150 years. Today, NAS continues to advise the nation on many complex issues, including how to respond to climate change, strengthen the U.S. economy in the global marketplace, and improve the safety of offshore oil drilling. Your support is critical for the NAS to continue to shape science policy through its reports and activities, and to engage with the public about the significance of science and technology in society.
Since 1964, the National Academy of Engineering has been a national voice for engineering, providing sound advice on matters of engineering and technology. By expanding our funding, NAE can celebrate its 50th Anniversary with the resources to help address the Grand Challenges facing us today, turn complex technological questions into opportunities for innovation and improvement, and maintain NAE’s position as a national voice for engineering. Take a minute to read about our fundraising goals and check out our progress in achieving them.
Your donation to the Institute of Medicine is essential to further its goal of providing unbiased, evidence-based advice to policymakers, health professionals and the public. While many of the studies the IOM undertakes begin as mandates from Congress, we are an independent non-profit organization that works outside of government. The financial support from generous individuals, foundations, leading corporations, federal agencies, and other organizations who share our commitment to excellence and independence are essential to our quest to ask and answer the nation’s most pressing questions concerning health and health care.
