Thanks to a generous $50,000 anonymous gift to the AMIA LEAD fund, we launched a matching gift challenge through the end of 2020. For every dollar donated to the LEAD fund during this time period, gifts will be matched 1:1, up to the maximum amount of matching funds available. A donation amount of $100 is suggested, however, gifts at all levels are encouraged and our hope is to demonstrate our community’s commitment to future informaticians during this unprecedented time. Please donate so that all gifts can be matched!

As a reminder, funds that are raised via this mechanism will be used to augment and enhance current AMIA LEAD fund programs, including:

  • Providing travel awards or stipends for students to support their attendance at AMIA convening activities and/or virtual meetings; and
  • Providing scholarship to students or early-stage informatics investigators and practitioners to participate in AMIA sponsored training programs.

Please donate today!
