Giving & Its Impact

For more than 30 years, the Friedman School has set the standard for leadership, sparking a new dialogue about nutrition and health. We take our motto “Nourishing Minds. Nourishing Humanity” to heart as we advance nutrition knowledge, research and service to help people and communities worldwide enjoy healthier and more sustainable lives.

The nutritional landscape is constantly changing—from heightened concerns about childhood obesity, healthy aging, and chronic diseases to growing awareness of the effects of biotechnology and sustainable agriculture on our food and environment. Contributing to a greater understanding of these changes and their health implications requires a foundation for true and lasting excellence.

The Friedman School’s top priorities focus on support for financial aid, faculty, research, and areas of greatest need. The Friedman School stands ready to forge new collaborations, expand outreach and support, and attract world-class faculty and students. We invite you to join us in building an even stronger foundation for our future.
