We’re All Connected: Your Impact in Action


Over the past year, the United States and our world continued to face unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. With your support, we were able to have tremendous impact. And together with you, we have been a part of the greatest public health collaboration in history. Healthcare workers, public health experts, researchers, businesses, schools, community organizations and so many others worked together in new ways. As we reflect on our work over the past year, I am thankful to each of you—each individual, each partner who supported us and made our work possible.

I hope you will take a moment to learn about your impact in our latest Report to Donors, which covers our work from throughout the July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021, fiscal year.

With your support, we provided tools and mental health resources to help those affected by COVID-19 related stress, grief and loss. We rolled out an innovative solution for safe water access to rural Alaskans. We supported research to provide critical COVID-19 data to inform reopening plans and safety strategies for schools. We provided support to many community-based organizations throughout the United States. We implemented a creative program to help address the opioid epidemic. We organized multiple communication campaigns and partnerships to encourage vaccine uptake and improve understanding of the critical role of vaccines in protecting everyone. And many more initiatives like the ones you see highlighted throughout our fiscal year 2021 report.

Thank you for connecting with us, supporting us and for helping us make an impact around the world.
