However you choose to give, the NAM greatly appreciates your generosity, which helps us continue to accelerate progress in science, medicine, and health policy worldwide. Explore our giving options below to determine what works best for you.

Online

Online gifts are the most immediate way to support the NAM. To give online, you can use our secure online gift form and follow the instructions provided. You have the ability to make your gift as a one-time payment, or as a convenient monthly recurring gift. Your credit card will be charged on the 15th of each month until you tell us to stop.

Mail or Phone

Our printable donation form offers an easy way to mail your contribution. Checks made payable to the “National Academy of Medicine” should be mailed to our secure offsite processing center at:

To make your gift via telephone, please call the Office of Development at 202-334-2431 and be ready to provide the information requested on the donation form.

Planned Gifts

Your planned gift to the NAM, often in the form of a simple bequest, represents your current commitment to the long-term future of health and health care. We encourage you to explore the Academies’ planned giving website today.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a mechanism that simplifies the administrative burden of fulfilling your philanthropic objectives. DAFs offer the favorable tax benefits of giving directly to charities with added flexibility around timing of gifts. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

If you have a DAF with Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to the NAM directly from your fund, and you can use the DAF Direct Link to designate them to a fund of your choice.

Workplace Giving

Matching Gifts: Did you know that your gift may be eligible for matching dollars if a corporation or foundation with a matching gift program employs you or a family member? This is an easy way to double your donation. Please contact the administrator of your matching gift program to find out the steps you need to take in order to have your gift matched.

Stock Gifts

A gift of long-term appreciated stock (more than 1 year) allows you to avoid capital gains tax. When itemizing your deductions, you can deduct the fair market value of the stock. If you choose this option, please complete this form and contact Shawn Neil, Director of Advancement Services, at 202-334-3823 or sneil@nas.edu so that we can accurately initiate and credit your contribution.

Professional Award or Honoraria Gifts

Donating professional awards, honoraria, prizes, or other forms of payment can be a creative way to support the work of the NAM while potentially avoiding the taxable income. If you would like to learn more about how to donate an award or honoraria to the NAM, please contact the Office of Development at 202-334-2431 or giving@nationalacademies.org

Tax-Exempt Status

The Academies are tax exempt under a federal charter granted to the National Academy of Sciences. Gifts and grants to the National Academy of Medicine are tax-deductible. The NAM proudly adheres to a Donor’s Bill of Rights, allowing you to have complete confidence that as a donor to the NAM your wishes will always be respected.
