Annual Support

Annual Support

Annual unrestricted support is the cornerstone of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health's (FNIH) efforts. It enables us to have the resources and flexibility we need to recruit and bolster expertise, incubate new ideas and generate investment funding for leading-edge biomedical research projects and transformative scientific initiatives.

Please join us in what has been one of the most successful and productive public-private partnerships in the history of biomedical research. Here is how:

Partners Society

The FNIH Partners Society recognizes annual unrestricted gifts of $500 or more. All Partners Society members will receive special benefits, including invitations to donor networking events. Read more

Recurring Gifts

When you choose to make a recurring gift, a gift is automatically charged to the credit or debit card of your choice, at the amount and frequency (monthly, quarterly or annually) that you decide. Your recurring gift will be an essential source of support that the FNIH can reliably count on throughout the year. Read more

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double your donation. Many employers offer matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match. Read more
