Description

New York, NY – EIN 582033460 eltonjohnaidsfoundation.org

The Elton John AIDS Foundation was established in 1992 and is one of the leading independent AIDS organisations in the world. The Foundation’s mission is simple: to be a powerful force in the end to the AIDS epidemic. We are committed to no more discrimination. No more HIV infections. No more AIDS deaths. No matter who or where you are.

We believe AIDS can be beaten. But only if everyone at risk of HIV, no matter who they are or where they are has access to the non-discriminatory HIV information and compassionate care that allow them to stay healthy and safe and live with dignity.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation is a non-profit organization established by musician Sir Elton John in 1992 to help fund frontline partners to prevent infections, fight stigma and provide treatment with love, compassion and dignity for the most vulnerable groups affected by HIV around the world.

The Foundation has raised more than $450 million worldwide, saved 5 million lives and supported 3000 projects to date[1] (September 2020).

The Elton John AIDS Foundation is in the top 10 philanthropic funders of HIV/AIDS grants worldwide, number one philanthropic funder in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and 2nd largest HIV philanthropic funder of LGBTQ populations globally.[2]

History[3]

Ryan White in 1989

Elton John was inspired to start the organization after the passing of Indiana teenager, Ryan White, who was infected with HIV by a blood transfusion and died in 1990.

In 1999, the World Health Organization announced that AIDS was Africa’s number one killer, with 33 million HIV infections and 14 million AIDS-related deaths. It was during this time that the Foundation funded palliative care in Africa to support 800,000 people to die with dignity and help over 800,000 children orphaned by AIDS.

In 2002, Elton John testified before U.S Congress pleading for more funds to fight the global AIDS epidemic, and in 2003, President Bush created PEPFAR, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, the biggest fund for health in history.

During the following years, the Foundation continued to fund HIV testing, treatment and care services for key populations most at risk.

Elton John met with President Macron in 2019 and was awarded the Légion d'Honneur for his commitment to HIV/AIDS.

Mission[4]

As a leader in the global AIDS community, the Elton John AIDS Foundation is committed to overcome the stigma, discrimination and neglect that keeps us from ending AIDS.

The Foundation’s purpose is to harness local expertise, mobilise networks of generous public and private supporters and partners, and maximise the platform and influence of our Founder Elton John to eliminate HIV as a problem for people vulnerable to HIV and for their communities.

  1. No more discrimination
  2. No more HIV infections
  3. No more AIDS deaths

Programs funded by the Elton John AIDS Foundation[5]

As a grant-making organisation, the Elton John AIDS Foundation creates bespoke partnerships and announce opportunities for funding whilst carefully monitoring impact for all projects with current grantees.

Example initiatives funded by the Foundation include:

  • RADIAN: This ground-breaking partnership with Gilead Sciences aims to meaningfully address new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS related illnesses in EECA through focused action, investment and resourcing to improve the quality of prevention and care for people at risk of or living with HIV in the region.[6]
  • UK HIV SOCIAL IMPACT BOND: The Elton John AIDS Foundation, Lambeth Council, The National Lottery Community Fund, ViiV Healthcare, Comic Relief, and Big Issue Invest have come together to implement the world’s first Social Impact Bond (SIB) focused on HIV testing and treatment in three of London’s most impacted boroughs: Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark.[8]

Events

Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party

Every year, the foundation hosts a viewing party for the Academy Awards. It is an invitation-only event that has grown to become one of the most desired invitations in the entertainment industry, as well as one of the Elton John AIDS Foundation's most fruitful fundraising efforts. For the first few years, the party was a dinner held at the Maple Drive restaurant in Beverly Hills. The inaugural dinner was arranged by Patrick Lippet, another activist in Hollywood who was best known for his work with the Rock the Vote campaign. Lippet died from AIDS only three months after helping Elton John put together the first Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar night party.

In 1998, the party moved to Spago, another upscale restaurant in Beverly Hills known for its celebrity clientele. It has moved multiple times since then with the West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles serving as the venue in since 2018.

The event features dinner, a live broadcast of the Academy Awards Ceremony, and a post-broadcast after-party with live music.

This annual event has raised millions of dollars, thanks to the generosity of the Foundation’s supporters, which helps the Foundation support HIV treatment and care for the most marginalized communities.

Midsummer Party

In July 2019, the Foundation held their first Midsummer Party event in the South of France to support HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, supporting services, and advocacy programs across the globe.

The star-studded evening was held at Johnny Pigozzi’s beautiful Villa Dorane at the end of Cap d’Antibes and featured a cocktail reception and a sumptuous Provençal dinner with beautiful music provided by Stjepan Hauser of 2Cellos.
