Nonprofit Forum

Nonprofit Forum

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites members of nonprofit organizations to an annual Nonprofit Forum. The Progress through Partnership Forum provides an opportunity for nonprofit leaders to network with colleagues and to engage in discussions with NINDS staff.

This year's forum took place on May 21 - 22, 2019 at the Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Blvd., Bethesda, MD. Discussions were held on cell and gene therapy, data collection and storage, motivating the next generation of researchers, neuroethics and success stories. Representatives from nonprofit groups related to neurology were welcomed to this public meeting. NINDS requested that participating groups meet the following criteria:

  • Obtain 501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Service
  • Have a scientific advisory board
  • Offer information they have produced or a valuable service
  • Respond inquiries received by phone and/or mail
  • Public materials offered are provided free of charge (except for minimal cost recovery fees)

We are happy to work with groups of all sizes and at every stage of development. Please contact Jessica Corley if you have any questions.
