On December 10, 2014, the NAS and IOM community came together and made their Day of Giving a tremendous success. In one day, 29 individuals raised over $12,500 for NAS, and with gifts from 55 individuals and a special $25,000 matching gift, the IOM raised nearly $50,000. This show of collective action will create an enduring impact for NAS and IOM. We are grateful to those who participated; your support will ensure the future of innovative, trusted, and objective leadership in advancing science and medicine.

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 its funding, NAE will 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.
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, it is 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 in our quest to ask and answer the nation’s most pressing questions concerning health and health care.
