Donor Support

The Ebola Fund provides a tax-deductible vehicle to allow donors to directly support the Ebola response. It gives donors a mechanism to concentrate resources on the greatest need as determined by responders on the ground.

The Ebola Fund also aligns with advocacy efforts that encourage donor countries to do more to support the Ebola response.


Why Fund?

The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo is at a tipping point. Philanthropic capital is needed to support the emergency response to contain the virus. 

By funding The Ebola Fund, you are able to support the rapidly changing needs in a complex and evolving environment.


With your support, we can stop the Ebola virus from spreading across international borders and from becoming a long-term global threat.
