Double Your Impact This Holiday Giving Season

December 4, 2012

Together, we can mobilize our resources and advance medical research to defeat the diseases that afflict us in this generation and the next. The opportunity to advance biomedical research and spare millions from suffering has never been greater. At the same time, our nation’s premier medical research agency, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), faces funding cuts that threaten important discoveries. Going forward, support from individuals will play a larger role than ever in determining scientific progress and how many lives are saved.

Last week, a longstanding donor made a $25,000 challenge grant to the FNIH. Thanks to his generosity, every dollar given before the end of the year will be matched up to $25,000. Your donation will go twice as far.

The FNIH’s charge to support the mission of the NIH has never been more critical. Mobilizing and investing nearly $700 million to tackle major challenges in biomedical research, we build partnerships with corporations, foundations and individuals like you to pave the way for scientific discoveries that prevent, treat and even cure the most devastating diseases of our time.

By supporting the FNIH, you are advancing the future of public health.

With our sincerest thanks, and best wishes for the holiday season,

Maria C. Freire, Ph.D.
President
Foundation for the National Institutes of Health

P.S. The FNIH spends 94 cents of every dollar directly in support of programs—we are proud of this record and of our responsible stewardship of your support.
