Make a Gift

When you give to the CDC Foundation, you help set vital public health programs into motion—programs that CDC can't fund now and may never be able to fund without your support. With your help, we can help CDC improve health for people everywhere.

Give an unrestricted gift: Where your gift is needed most. Unrestricted gifts allow us to use your gift to address the highest priorities of the CDC Foundation and CDC. We encourage individual donors to make unrestricted gifts.

1.Give now online. You will have the opportunity to direct your gift to one or multiple funds.

2.Give by mail.

3.Give by phone: Call 404.653.0790 or 888.880.4CDC.


All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Memorial/Honor Gifts: If you wish to remember a friend or loved one who has passed away, consider a memorial gift to the CDC Foundation. To honor a colleague, friend or family member, you can make a tribute gift to the Foundation in that person’s name.

Matching Gifts: You can double, or in some cases triple, your gift to the CDC Foundation by matching it through your employer or your spouse’s employer. Check with your personnel department to see if your company has a matching gift program.

Endowed Funds: These funds provide a permanent source of support for specific CDC Foundation programs or activities. The funds from an endowed gift are invested and only investment returns are used. See the list of endowed funds on the right side of this page.

Restricted Funds: These funds are “restricted” because they can only be used for a specific purpose or program. See the list of restricted funds on the right side of this page. 

Planned Gifts: Planned gifts include a variety of gifts with special tax advantages, including gifts through your estate (bequests). Learn More

Gifts of Securities: Gifts of appreciated assets may be made outright or paid in installments. Please consult your tax or financial advisor if you are considering making a gift of securities.
