|Giving Tuesday - November 29, 2016|
The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Entering its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to inspire people to give back in impactful ways to the causes and communities they support.
Since 2003, the NPA has taken on the ambitious agenda to improve the postdoctoral experience by supporting enhanced research training, and a culture of enhanced professional growth to benefit scholarship and innovation. Postdoctoral scholars conduct research and support discovery that directly affects and improves the quality of lives for millions of people. They are the individuals conducting basic and clinical research throughout the country that advances medical discoveries through new drug development, advanced cancer therapies, and more. Our goal is to raise awareness of the invaluable contributions that postdoctoral scholars make, and to encourage individuals to support the future of innovation by donating directly on our website.
The NPA aims to raise $3,000 in support of current and future postdoctoral scholars. Postdocs of the future are counting on you. Won’t you help make their future better?
Along with funding daily operations, your contribution will be used toward webinars and publication of our Institutional Policy report, and will allow the NPA to provide a national voice for postdoctoral scholars; to facilitate positive change for postdocs; and thereby to advance the research enterprise in the United States.
There are several ways to donate – by check or credit card, online or by mail. Be sure to log in before you donate to ensure that your donation is associated with your member profile. You can also set-up your donation to be reoccurring on the donation form.
