The scientific breakthroughs of the twenty-first century hold great promise and opportunity to improve peoples’ lives, and the National Academy of Medicine’s (NAM) mission to accelerate the progress of science, medicine, health, and policy is vital to harnessing the potential of the moment. For 48 years, the NAM has been providing leadership at the forefront of complex challenges in health and medicine. Explore some of the giving opportunities available to you below and join us in our effort to ensure a healthy future for all.
NAM Annual Fund
While government agencies, foundations, and corporations fund many of the National Academy of Medicine’s activities, they are not sufficient to sustain our vital programming and initiatives alone. The NAM depends on philanthropy from individuals to provide critical, unrestricted funding for the NAM’s ongoing role of providing leadership at the forefront of complex challenges in health and medicine. Your support helps us to advise the nation and world, identify and respond to emerging challenges, catalyze action, achieve impact, and promote the importance of science and evidence-based analysis.
The Harvey F. Fineberg Impact Fund
The Harvey V. Fineberg Impact Fund, named in honor of the seventh president of the Institute of Medicine, was established to confront the immense challenges of health care delivery, cost, research, outcomes, and education. Gifts to this fund will help to:
- Advance Initiatives – Spearhead studies on controversial and complex issues that government and other institutions are not able or willing to support.
- Create Partnerships – Establish and sustain meaningful partnerships for action and innovative use of media to reach and educate the public about ways to protect and enhance their own health.
- Communicate Findings – Effectively translate and communicate our recommendations to populations who stand to benefit most.
Gifts to the NAM Endowment provide us lasting capital to help anticipate and respond to pressing questions about health and health care. Investment income from the endowment is used to initiate NAM activities in response to urgent health matters in the United States and abroad.
The NAM Fellows Program, created in 2005 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the NAM, provides talented early career health science scholars with an opportunity to participate actively in the work of the NAM and to further their careers as future leaders in the field.
