Profound shifts in the global economy and the traditional funding structure of medical and public health research make private support paramount for the Bloomberg School’s future.
A big thank-you to the 2,384 donors, including individuals, foundations and corporations, who have already made a gift in fiscal year 2014: we have almost reached our goal of 2,500 donors! It's great to have such a broad base of donors who give, on average, $100 each, with the majority giving unrestricted support for the School's greatest needs each year.
While some donors give to specific research areas or particular departmental funds, we set a goal to raise $500,000 in unrestricted support, allowing the Dean to apply these funds as emerging needs arise. As of May 1, we have exceeded our goal and hope surpass it by 20% before June 30th, which will provide the School with additional resources at a time when we need them the most.
Whether you give $50 or $50,000, your choice to support our work in public health makes the difference. Every donor helps strengthen our foundation and advance our mission.
