Strength in Numbers

givingWhat can $50 buy? For a family of four, $50 is a night at the movies, pizza for dinner or a  tank of gas.

But what if $50 becomes $500,000?

If each and every one of our 10,329 alumni gave just $50 each year to the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, we would have $516,450 to spend on critical needs like scholarships, research, and service opportunities that bring Tulane public health to the world.

Contributions to the SPHTM annual fund are pooled together to maximize the impact of your gift and fortify critical programs that need our support the most.

Through the SPHTM Annual Fund, $50 can help –

  • upgrade student learning facilities, from study spaces, to classroom technology, to laboratories;
  • support students’ study or work on infectious or chronic diseases;
  • support research into novel approaches to diseases such as malaria; and
  • provide funding for data sets, field gear, and other tools used by both students and faculty.

For just $50 you can inspire students to make a difference in the world, whether that’s in an impoverished community in New Orleans, a village in Africa, or a healthcare facility in China.

The choice seems clear. Individually we are limited by what we can do. Collectively the possibilities are endless.

So what can you do with $50? Together, we can make a real difference in addressing the issues impacting human health at home in Louisiana and around the world.

If you are interested in helping students and faculty through the SPHTM Annual Fund,
you may make a gift online or you may contact Tatine Maginnis Frater at 504-314-7331 or at
