Annual Funds

Every annual gift has an impact on our students and faculty at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health.  And collectively, gifts of all sizes will make a significant contribution to the Boundless campaign for the Dalla Lana School of Public Health.

Donors who make an annual gift of $1,000 or more are recognized at the Leadership Level, and you can double your impact with our Corporate Matching Gift program.

There are a number of ways to contribute to annual funds at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health:

  • Monthly donations
  • Payroll deductions
  • Gifts of securities
  • One-time annual gifts

Whatever method and amount you choose, you can be assured that your donation today and for years to come will do more than simply support a student award or research project. Your gift will support a dedicated group of individuals, providing them with the skills, knowledge and experience to meet the present and future needs of today’s public health and health systems, ensuring the health and prosperity of our communities.

Every gift truly makes a difference. Without the support of our Annual Fund donors, we would not be able to provide public health students with the opportunity to excel and become the future leaders in the profession.
