Atlanta AIDS Fund
Changing the way our region responds to HIV and AIDS for 35+ years.
Advocacy. Education. Service. Leadership.
The Atlanta AIDS Fund is a partnership between the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, United Way of Greater Atlanta, Jeffrey Fashion Cares and the Allen Thornell HIV Care and Service Fund.
The Community Foundation was a pioneer of HIV/AIDS philanthropy, making our first grant in 1981, when the disease was still known as GRID (Gay Related Immune Disease). The Atlanta AIDS Fund was created in 1991 to support metro Atlanta’s HIV/AIDS advocacy, prevention education and service efforts through funding and leadership.
Since then, the world has made tremendous progress in the care and prevention of HIV/AIDS. But challenges still persist, particularly in our Atlanta region. New HIV infections have concentrated among people of color and those who are poor, homeless, incarcerated, have other health challenges, have unprotected sex and/or use drugs. Their infections are more likely to progress to AIDS because these communities historically have little or no access to health care.
