Partners for a Healthier World
By contributing to The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, you can become a partner in groundbreaking biomedical research and discoveries.
The combination of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the private sector, academia and advocacy organizations offers hope—for the continued discovery and development of scientific and medical breakthroughs that will lead to better prevention, diagnoses, therapies and cures. The FNIH brings it all together.
The FNIH is the sole entity authorized by Congress to raise private funds to establish public-private partnerships with all 27 institutes and centers of the National Institutes of Health. Our unique understanding of NIH’s unparalleled resources ensures that our initiatives maximize each contributor’s impact and achieve each partner’s goals. In fact, an independent non-profit evaluator has named us the No. 1 medical research charity in the country.
FNIH manages numerous projects—in areas ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s to arthritis to global health—with efficiency, effectiveness and accountability, always supporting the mission of the NIH, to turn discovery into health. Your gift builds directly on our nation’s investment in the superior, cutting-edge biomedical research of NIH.
