Donate to CUGH's Summer Fundraising Drive: Support Travel Scholarships for LMIC Attendees to our 2017 Conference

Dear Colleague,

Over the last three years, since we set up our Secretariat in Washington, DC, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) has nearly tripled in size. Currently, we have 146 institutional members and a network of 19,000 individuals around the world. Last April, our annual conference attracted 1800 people and was our most successful one yet. Over this short period of time we have added new activities, strengthened our committees across education, research, enabling systems, trainees and advocacy, convened leaders from global health programs, added new workshops and webinars, broadened our international reach and increased the menu of activities and benefits we are providing to those involved in global health. We have done this without any expansion at the Secretariat.

In order for us to increase and strengthen our benefits, activities and impact we need to attract new resources. We would like to increase our support for our colleagues in low and middle income countries so they can present and participate at our conference; support our mentorship initiative for global health programs; increase our efforts to include minority serving institutions; increase our advocacy activities for global health funding and important policy solutions that will improve health outcomes especially for those who are least advantaged; and strengthen our support for our research, education and enabling systems committees.

I am asking you to join us in this effort and help support our programs and activities by donating to CUGH at


CUGH is a 501c(3) organization so your donations are tax deductible.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

With our Gratitude and Best Wishes,
