Invest in the future of health. Your Gift Matters.

The NAM’s groundbreaking programs and initiatives are founded on the principles of leadership, innovation, and impact. Through the unparalleled expertise of our membership, our commitment to bold and cross-cutting solutions, and our power to unite stakeholders around urgent priorities, the NAM sets the agenda for global progress in health and health care.

As an independent, nonprofit organization, the NAM relies on philanthropic dollars to fund its work. For example, donations to the NAM support:

  • Programs to enrich the experience of early- and mid-career professionals and nurture the next generation of health and medical leaders.
  • A boundary-breaking effort to advise policy makers in the United States and abroad about the path forward for health reform.
  • An international initiative to prepare health systems to respond more efficiently to the next global crisis.
  • A pioneering project to unite world leaders around shared priorities and audacious goals.
