Today, the need for flexible private funding is great as IDRI makes advances in research and product development to improve the health of the world. The funding environment has shifted over the past few years with government and foundation sources becoming increasingly focused and restricted. Gifts of any size are welcome and will be put to use to help IDRI fulfill its global health mission.

IDRI offers specific giving programs that come with special benefits for donors.

Innovation Fund: IDRI’s Innovation Fund fosters creative, “out-of-the-box” thinking that leads to much-needed new solutions. By filling an unmet need that isn’t addressed through traditional scientific research grants, our Innovation Fund enables new ideas and initiatives, trains the next generation of scientists and leverages major grants. Your unrestricted gift to IDRI’s Innovation Fund supports key organizational needs and offers the greatest flexibility to respond to new opportunities as we meet emerging global health challenges.

Multi-year commitment for gifts to the IDRI Innovation Fund starting at the $1,000 level advances programs vital to support IDRI’s scientific research and development by providing funding to:

  • Seed new projects.
  • Recruit and retain the best and brightest scientists.
  • Acquire state-of-the-art technologies and equipment.
  • Leverage scientific grants and fill gaps in those grants.
  • Train the next generation of global health scientists.

Our Innovation Partners receive special benefits, including invitations to private events and a yearly members-only reception, as well as recognition in IDRI’s annual report and donor wall. Give Now.
