As we embrace the warmth and joy of the holiday season, it’s a time to reflect on the gift of health and the incredible advances in medical research that improve lives every day. This year, we invite you to extend the spirit of giving by supporting the FNIH.

Your donation can make a significant impact, enabling groundbreaking research, fostering innovation, and accelerating the development of new treatments and cures. Together, we can help advance the vital work of the NIH, touching countless lives and build bridges to breakthroughs for all.

If the end of this year finds you feeling reflective and inspired to give back, we want you to know that you still have time to bring the hope of a brighter future for the acceleration of diagnostics, therapeutics, and even cures.  

While science has the power to cure, no single organization can do that alone. A donation of $35, $50, or even $100 or more will help us build “Bridges to Breakthroughs” across the many challenging therapeutic areas with the goal of creating greater impact faster.
