Fundraise Your Way with the CDC Foundation


As new threats to public health continue to emerge, are you wondering how you can make a meaningful impact in the lives of others at home and around the world? There’s a new way to support public health! You can now become an ambassador for health by creating an individual or team fundraising page today to help the CDC Foundation save and improve lives.

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare both gaps in public health infrastructure and the reality of health disparities. Because a major priority of public health is promoting health care equity, quality and accessibility, helping these efforts advance is more important than ever. That's where the CDC Foundation comes in. The Foundation constantly innovates and advances both the art and science of collaboration and effective program management, so that we can bring all parties into open, beneficial partnerships that serve the greater good of people and communities.

With more than 25 years in public health stewardship and over 1,200 programs funded in 165 countries, you can count on the CDC Foundation to advance research and public health programming where it's needed most. And you can create your fundraising page with the confidence that we'll provide secure tools to help you engage your network and multiply your impact.

Whether it's in support of our emergency response to COVID-19 or focusing on the fight against chronic diseases like cancer or heart disease, with our new fundraising platform you can:

  • Give a one-time gift to support the CDC Foundation’s Emergency Response Fund.
  • Fundraise as an individual for public health efforts.
  • Create a team and fundraise with your friends and family to support public health programs.

You can rally your personal network to support public health initiatives, whether you do so in celebration of a milestone, in honor of a loved one, or as part of hosting an event. It can even be a creative addition to a regular activity like trivia night or community bike rides. However you choose to do so, now you can invite your family, friends and colleagues to join your fundraising efforts by sharing why public health matters to you.

Create your fundraiser your way, and we'll provide you with guidance and materials to ensure you have what you need to fundraise sucessfully. Check out our fundraising toolkit to help you successfully reach your fundraising campaign goal and advance life-saving public health efforts. The toolkit includes helpful tips on creating and personalizing your fundraiser, as well as email and social media language and graphics for sharing your fundraiser with family and friends.

Remember, no fundraising goal or gift is too small, and every gift makes a difference in our effort to save and improve lives. Together our impact is greater.
