Essential Unrestricted Support
Your unrestricted support of the Dornsife School of Public Health plays an essential role in enabling our researchers, educators, practice-leaders, students, and staff to improve the health of populations through science, practice, and partnerships. Unrestricted gifts are automatically directed to the Dornsife Dean’s Initiative Fund, where your philanthropy empowers the Dean to make strategic investments that advance the Dornsife School’s mission to improve health in cities, eliminate health disparities, and promote health in all policies. Whether to help recruit a promising new faculty member, temporarily sustain a bright student experiencing financial difficulties, or provide seed funding for faculty research that could lead to a multi-million dollar federal grant, these investments help steer the School in directions that advance its research, education, and service missions
