The NSTMF’s programming would not be nearly as effective without the incredible group of experts in our orbit. Not only have these individuals accomplished great feats in science and technology and have been recognized for it at the highest levels of STEM in the United States, they are also incredibly generous with their greatest resource: their time.
These experts are integral to our efforts in building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable future in STEM and we are proud to have them involved with our programs. To honor their accomplishments and thank them for their commitment to DE&I, support our Expert Connect network.
There are many ways you can support the NSTMF today. The Foundation encourages general operating support, program support, and event sponsorship. We are pleased to collaborate with corporations, foundations, and individuals on our efforts and welcome new partners.
Unrestricted support affords the NSTMF the greatest flexibility. We use unrestricted funds where they are needed most, whether it be to fill in the gaps in program expenses, event sponsorship, or general operating costs.
Restricted support directly funds the program of the contributor’s choice. The NSTMF will work with a donor who is interested in restricting their funding to direct the funds according to the donor’s areas of interest.
Event sponsorship supports a specific event, or suite of events, that is of particular interest to the donor. We will work with contributors interested in sponsoring one of more of our events to find a good fit for partnership.
Making a donation is easy, and we greatly appreciate all levels of support. The NSTMF accepts a variety of different payment options including credit/debit, PayPal, check, e-check, wire, stock, and donor-advised fund.
