for general operating support  
The Federation of American Scientists, founded in 1945 by scientists who helped develop the atomic bomb, is devoted to the belief that scientists, engineers, and other technically trained people have the ethical obligation to ensure that the technological fruits of science are applied to the benefit of mankind. It shines a spotlight on making government more accountable and reducing global catastrophic risks. Its Congressional Science Policy Initiative promotes better two-way communication to inform and educate Congress and the public on complex science and technology issues and to educate the science community on the workings of Congress. Its Day One project has it working with other science societies to develop recommendations for personnel in science-related Senate-confirmed and career positions in the executive agencies, and to develop science policy recommendations for Congress and the White House.
