The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is an independent non-profit organization whose work relies on support from generous individuals, foundations, businesses, government, and other organizations. Philanthropy underpins our essential mission: to be the truthful voice for science, engineering, and medicine—the trusted source for independent, objective advice based on evidence.
