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 2,764 donors, including individuals, foundations and corporations, who gave to JHSPH in fiscal year 2014! While some donors give to specific research areas or departments, our FY14 goal was to raise $500,000 in unrestricted support, allowing the Dean to apply these funds as emerging needs arise. As of June 30, 2014 we raised $632,664, exceeding our goal by 27%! This provides the School with essential resources during these fiscally uncertain times.
We are especially grateful to our broad base of Annual Fund donors who give, on average, $100 each. For FY15, we hope to increase the number of annual fund donors to 1,659 (a 10% increase over last year) and to raise at least $600,000. 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.
