As 2013 draws to a close, NCSE would like to thank its Supporting Organizations for their generous assistance during the year. The current Supporting Organizations of NCSE are the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the A. Robert Kaufman Foundation, the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, the Paleontological Society, the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Stiefel Freethought Foundation, the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, the National Association of Geoscience Teachers, the Society for Developmental Biology, and the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology.
Organizations of all sorts, especially professional societies of scientists and educators, business associations, charitable foundations, and law firms, are eligible to become Supporting Organizations of NCSE. "Joining NCSE as a Supporting Organization is a potent way for organizations to support evolution and climate education and defend the integrity of science," explained NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott. "Especially because annual contributions from Supporting Organizations provide a much-needed stable income stream to support NCSE's important work," she added. Suggested annual levels of support are $10,000 (Crown), $5,000 (Branch), $1,000 (Trunk), and $500 (Root). Details of the Supporting Organization program are available on NCSE's website.
