General Fund

Donate Now

When you give to the General Fund, you provide INFORMS the unique opportunity to innovate and develop emerging efforts. Without this freedom, it is difficult to keep our industry on the “cutting edge” of meaningful change. Your investment allows you the chance to give back to the operations research, management sciences, and analytics community. Through this Fund and your support, INFORMS can support a variety of initiatives and programs that are designed to improve the advancement of our industry and facilitate tremendous growth for our members and their efforts.
