As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution, the New York Academy of Sciences relies on the generosity of its Members and friends to bring quality scientific programming to the public and to advance scientific discovery. In the face of great economic difficulty, the Academy has been prudent with expenditures and has begun to reach out to form new partnerships with foundations and corporate sponsors. But to continue providing the same level of service, we also need your help.
Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Academy today. Your contribution will help the Academy to build scientific communities, disseminate cutting-edge scientific knowledge quickly and effectively, help resolve global problems with science-based solutions, and make New York City an epicenter of science. There are several ways you can support us. (Click on the links to learn more.)
By making unrestricted gifts on an annual basis, you can help the Academy carry out its exciting programs and aid its overall operations. Donors who demonstrate an annual philanthropic commitment of $1,000 or more are named Members of the Charles Darwin Society, entitling them to unique privileges that provide an insider's look into the Academy.
Bundle your donation with a subscription to this season's Science & the City series and get tickets to all five talks, plus access to exclusive events and other benefits!
The Academy accomplishes its mission through several pivotal programs, which include interdisciplinary conferences and discussion groups, science-based initiatives that help solve global problems, publishing programs that disseminate new discoveries widely, and educational efforts to help emerging young talent manage their careers successfully. You can choose to contribute to a specific program, such as Frontiers of Science, Science & the City, or Scientists Without BordersSM.
By making a planned gift to the Academy, you can leave an enduring legacy while ensuring that we continue to serve future generations of scientists. Donors who remember the Academy in charitable bequests are recognized as Sustaining Members of the Academy and are invited to join the Lyceum Society.
Employer Matching Gifts
Many corporations match the gifts their employees and retirees make to the Academy. Please ask your firm's human resources department for a matching form and submit it to us along with your contribution. By doing so, you could double or even triple your gift to NYAS, making your gift even more meaningful.
