Take a Seat in History

The National Academy of Sciences Building stands as a “Temple of Science” described by former NAS president Charles D. Walcott as, “the place where the creative mind will be able to do much to bring about a better existence for the future people of the world.”

You have the chance to honor members, friends, family, and colleagues—while also helping the NAS make science work for humanity—by naming a seat in the Fred Kavli Auditorium of the historic NAS Building. Use our online donation form to take your seat in history today by making an unrestricted gift of $5,000. Starting on January 1, 2024, the price to name a seat will increase to $10,000. Until then, you can still name a seat with a gift or pledge of $5,000. If you would like more information about how to make a pledge, please contact NAS Director of Development Andrew Ho.
