Statement of Principles for Accepting Donations

Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to sustaining and expanding U.S. support for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

We are proud to receive support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and numerous other public and private organizations, and from individuals.

We believe we can best serve our mission when we have a diverse funding base. Friends is pleased to accept donations from organizations that:

  • Support the mission of the Global Fund to end the diseases of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria
  • Support efforts to ensure health services are delivered to all those in need, free of stigma and discrimination, and with full respect for each individual’s human rights
  • Support efforts to secure universal access to essential medicines and other health commodities

Friends does not accept donations from tobacco companies, gun manufacturers, defense industries, pornography industries and gambling companies.
