The Initiative on Health, Religion and Spirituality within Harvard is seeking short-term and long-term funding in order to permanently ensure our program offerings, which include: 

  • A series of lectures, seminars, courses, training programs, and conferences on religion and health at Harvard University
  • Promotion and funding for research on religion and health throughout the university
  • Encouragement of research and teaching about religion and health, particularly at the Harvard Medical School and the T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Gifts would exert significant influence throughout the medical and public health community, nationally and world-wide. We are also seeking gifts to establish endowed chaired professorships of religion/spirituality and health/medicine.

Please note that all donations to the Initiative on Health, Religion, and Spirituality are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
