New Initiative: Breakthrough

For 30 years, we’ve been relentlessly focused on putting an end to the AIDS epidemic, but we need to be doing more. In the Southern United States, there are 250,000 people who are living with HIV, but lack access to treatment, indicating an urgent need for HIV testing, education, prevention, and resources in the area.

We’re thrilled to be joining forces with Walmart to change the course of HIV in Atlanta and the Southern US, as we continue working towards a future free from AIDS.

our focus

We are excited to share a new short film with you from Elton John, David Furnish and Anne Aslett to hear how we at the Foundation plan to drive our mission forward, overcome stigma and hate, and end the AIDS epidemic by 2030.



Our RADIAN Unmet Need fund is looking to support sustainable, evidence-informed interventions that address the most significant and urgent unmet needs of Key Populations and people living with HIV. Supported interventions will measurably improve HIV-related outcomes; reduce stigma and discrimination experienced by people living with or most at risk of HIV; and document and disseminate learnings and results to help other cities, regions, and countries across EECA to end their HIV epidemic.

Leave a legacy

Everyone can make a planned gift. Many of our donors choose to include planned giving in their long-term financial strategies, often enabling them to fund a larger and more meaningful gift than they may otherwise be able do during their lifetime. You can add a gift or bequest to your will, fund a gift annuity that will pay you for the rest of your life with appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds, or gift an asset you no longer need or want.

To help you get started, our friends at FreeWill are offering a free estate planning service to our community in the United States, allowing you to write a legal will in 20 minutes or less at no personal cost. It can be used with attorneys for more complex estates, and can include the necessary language to complete a gift to the Elton John AIDS Foundation if you wish to make ending the AIDS epidemic a part of your lasting legacy.
