An Opportunity for Year-End Giving Will Support a Healthier and Stronger 2021

As 2020 is coming to a close, I am reflecting on what an extraordinary year it has been. While we have faced unprecedented challenges, we have also experienced incredible generosity from our partners around the world to help fight the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now you have a special opportunity to double your impact to further accelerate the critical health initiatives that will save and improve lives in 2021. Two longtime supporters and board members of the CDC Foundation have joined together to create a generous matching gift that will double your support up to $45,000 before December 31. This means, whatever you give today will be matched dollar for dollar and go twice as far to protect and save lives during such a crucial time.

This is also an opportunity to give the gift of health this holiday season. Honor those in your life who love and support you—your friends, your family, your colleagues. When you make a donation in a loved one’s name, you can send an e-card in their honor in time for the holidays.

Please consider a donation to help public health heroes in communities across America working to protect us from COVID-19 and other health threats. It will support and accelerate critical public health programs in the new year, helping us protect the health, safety and security of America and the world. Let’s make a resolution to save and improve lives together in this new year.

Thank you for your continued partnership, your generosity and for all you do to help ensure health for your community and around the world.

Together our impact is greater.

We wish you a healthy and happy holiday season!



Judy Monroe, MD, is president and CEO of the CDC Foundation.
