The CDC Foundation



The following information has been reposted from their website. To learn more and to donate, please click here.

 

The CDC Foundation, a nonprofit organization, helps serve ALL OF US, all of the many needs that arise during an emergency response that the federally-funded CDC cannot cover.


Your dollars will:

  • help communities prevent, detect and respond to COVID-19

  • increase laboratory capacity to keep pace with increasing demand for staffing, specialized equipment and supplies, specimen collection and delivery

  • deploy emergency staffing with the skills required to meet the needs on the front lines at the state and local level

  • provide support to vulnerable communities, including people with underlying health conditions and those who are homeless

  • develop health education and awareness campaigns to combat misinformation, advance prevention and reduce stigma

  • boost clinical tools to improve health outcomes

  • develop new technology tools and update existing disease surveillance systems

  • build capacity and infrastructure for global response efforts and other immediate needs as they evolve
