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.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Andrea Varea.
We aim to feature areas that interest you, our stakeholders. Do you have any topic ideas for the next Nonprofit Forum? Email us your suggestions!
In addition to the Nonprofit Forum, NINDS welcomes opportunities for focused conversations about science covered within the institute’s portfolio and your disease-oriented nonprofit organization. Contact us for more information.
Did you miss the 2023 forum?
Representatives and members from nonprofit groups related to neurology are welcomed to this public meeting. NINDS requests that participating organizations 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 to 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 Andrea Varea if you have any questions.
