"Golden Anniversary" Capital Campaign
Announcing the NAM "Golden Anniversary" Campaign
In 2019, the National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) celebrated its 50th Anniversary Year! From January 1, 2017 until September 30, 2019, NAM conducted a GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY CAMPAIGN with the goal of establishing a NAM Endowment Fund of at least $2 million to serve as the base support, ensuring vibrant annual programs and activities for many years in the future.
During the Golden Anniversary Campaign, NAM hoped to achieve significant membership increases, doubling the number of Regular Members and increasing the number of Life Members by at least 50% as well as increasing abundantly student membership! NAM's Golden Anniversary Campaign began its kick-off with an Initial Membership Phase on January 1, 2017. In this phase, NAM sought to increase its membership numbers as well as solicit contributions of at least $50,000 to the Campaign from the membership. In addition, during the nationwide campaign beginning April 1, 2017, members, friends, philanthropists, foundations, companies, and other supportive enterprises had the opportunity to partially or fully endow any of the annual programs and activities that NAM sponsors annually.
Become a Supporter!
Today, the percentage of mathematical scientists from underrepresented populations is still quite small compared to their proportion in American society. NAM is still a supportive community that encourages professional development and mathematical excellence, emphasizes a knowledge of mathematical heritage, and uses lessons and accomplishments of the past to inspire students. As an internationally recognized mathematical sciences professional organization, NAM is still needed.
We urge you to join in supporting the NAM Golden Anniversary Campaign. As a new or renewing member, you may choose your way of supporting the Initial Membership Phase from those listed on the Membership Form. As an individual donor, you may contribute/donate here or by mailing a check to the NAM Treasurer Roselyn Williams at the address below. Organizations wishing to donate should contact the NAM Golden Anniversary Campaign Co-Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the most convenient procedure.
NAM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, EIN 51-0183976. All gifts are tax deductible.
