COVID-19 Giving Opportunities

The world is counting on us.

As a deadly new disease upends lives, societies, and economies; as governments across our interconnected planet scramble to respond; as billions fear for their health, their families, their jobs and their futures, the vital importance of our work at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has never been clearer. Our thought-leading faculty experts; our deep bench in epidemiologic response; our networks across Harvard and the biomedical industry; and our global partnerships in government, academia, and health give us a unique capacity to respond quickly and intelligently to this crisis and puts us on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.

The scale of our response is limited only by funding—especially discretionary funds that give us the flexibility to quickly reassign and deploy dollars where they are most needed. Your unrestricted support today to our COVID-19 Response Fund is the key to expanding our capacity in this global emergency. With your help, we can develop and apply solutions directly.

You will help us mobilize laboratories and supercomputers, people and programs to focus on immediate response at the level only Harvard could provide. In the race to predict, curb, and treat COVID-19, your investment will immediately yield lives saved.

Gifts at all levels will help accelerate our COVID-19 response.

In this moment, we are changing the shape of the future. Join us.
