Value Our Work? Please Support It!

Thousands of professionals across programs, systems and domains regularly engage with the National Interoperability Collaborative for its unique cross-sector resources, webinars, projects and relationships. Hundreds of you, individually or through your organizations, are NIC members.

In other words, we have succeeded in building the “community of networks” that we envisioned when we launched the NIC initiative just a few short years ago (with thanks to the Kresge Foundation for its generous seed funding).

So now it’s time to ask a very NPR type of question: What are NIC and its activities worth to you?

NIC is an initiative of Stewards of Change Institute (SOCI), which is a nonprofit organization that depends on grants and contributions to conduct its work. Today we’re asking you to join other supporters of that work, so it can continue and grow into the future.

Your donation of any amount – $25, $50, $100 or more if you can – will go toward furthering SOCI’s National Action Agenda to Advance Health Equity, providing NIC’s Collaboration Hub and Resource Center, building our new InterOptimability Training and Certification Curriculum (ITCC) and much, much more. Donations are being accepted online through this web form.

Whether you can provide financial support or not, your participation in NIC is integral to our success, so thank you for sticking with us.

On behalf of everyone at SOCI, we wish you a good holiday season and far better year ahead.

– Daniel Stein
