Zygon's two sponsoring organizations, which appoint its Joint Publication Board, are:
(1) Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS). Founded in 1954, IRAS is an independent society of natural scientists, social scientists, philosophers, religion scholars, theologians, and others who seek to understand and reformulate the theory and practice of religion in the light of contemporary scientific knowledge. It is both an affiliate society of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the Council on the Study of Religion, a federation of learned societies in the field of religion.
(2) Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science (CASIRAS). Founded in 1972, CASIRAS is an independent society of scholars and scientists from various fields who pursue critical, interdisciplinary studies of possibilities for constructively relating religion and science. Through the Zygon Center for Religion and Science (ZCRS) it offers instruction and research opportunities in the implications of science for religion to seminarians, graduate students, visiting scholars, and faculty.
