The Fund for Global Health is a social profit organization. We are a philanthropic agency seeking improvement in social indicators rather than monetary profit, but we take a business-like approach, working to achieve the greatest possible impact per dollar invested. In short, our driving mission is to provide the maximum possible health benefit to vulnerable communities. more information, go to: www.fundforglobalhealth.org
We are a national grassroots advocacy organization that has worked with others to secure tens of millions of dollars in additional Congressional appropriations for lifesaving global health programs funded by the United States government. Currently, the Fund for Global Health is advocating for increased funding for comprehensive primary health care in global health security and health systems strengthening and an increased focus on frontline results in U.S. global health programs.
We are seeking constituents of U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the Chair of the Appropriations Committee, to join our work. Our Advocacy Fellows secure meetings with Congressional staff and produce virtual town halls to speak to their legislator directly.
This is an outstanding role for volunteers interested in global health and international development, as well as those interested in grassroots advocacy to Congressional representatives! We are a welcoming team meeting virtually twice a week. Additionally, we offer Fellows the opportunity to hear from leaders in global health once a month during our national zoom meeting! Despite the virtual nature of this fellowship, our fellows have tangible, real-world impact on the Congressional appropriations process that translates into lifesaving outcomes in the most vulnerable parts of the world.
