The CDC Foundation is an independent nonprofit and the sole entity created by Congress to mobilize philanthropic and private-sector resources to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's critical health protection work.

We are a catalyst for unleashing the power of collaboration between CDC and philanthropies, private entities and individuals to protect the health, safety and security of America and the world.

By aligning diverse interests and resources and leveraging all parties' strengths, our focused collaborations with private and philanthropic partners help create greater impact than any one entity can alone. Your support saves and improves lives-right now and in the future.

We have launched approximately 1,000 health protection programs and raised more than $740 million to support CDC's work over the past two decades. To keep people healthy, safe and secure, we managed over 300 CDC-led programs in the United States and in 130 countries.
