Creative Grantmaking Supports Comprehensive Solutions

Elton John Aids Foundation

Despite the progress made in recent decades to combat the disease, millions of lives are derailed each year by the AIDS pandemic. The Elton John AIDS Foundation believes in a multi-faceted approach to grappling with this epidemic through collaboration between government policies, social programs, scientific innovations, and health care aimed at comprehensive prevention and treatment. Through creative and dynamic grantmaking across the globe, the Elton John AIDS Foundation supports a variety of unique and innovative programs — oriented in health, education, or advocacy — that strive to alleviate suffering for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, educate communities about proper prevention methods, and construct a future with significantly reduced instances of infection.

Specifically, the foundation prioritizes providing flexible aid to marginalized communities that are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS, including gay and bisexual men, transgender people, Black women and men, incarcerated populations, and injection drug-users. By encouraging those suffering from HIV/AIDS to lead the fight against it, the foundation empowers them to regain their own confidence and simultaneously improve others' quality of life. This dually preventative and reactive support stretches to all corners of the globe through the foundation's two distinctive branches. The United States-based operation provides assistance to the most disempowered communities in the Americas, while the London-based branch oversees grantmaking in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
