AIDS United

September 27, 2019


AIDS United is an organization that works to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by supporting community-driven responses that reach the people who need it most. The organization was founded in 1988 and has directly funded over $104 million in grants for local communities and have leveraged over $117 million more for programs including care access, prevention, and advocacy.


The AIDS United website has a lot of information about various initiatives and programs. There is a tab where you can learn about the organization and there is a regularly updated blog with news and stories. Users can also learn more about Programs & Grantmaking, Policy & Advocacy, Capacity-Building Assistance, Webinars, and find the contact information to get involved.

Programs & Grantmaking

Under the Programs & Grantmaking tab, users can find out more about funding opportunities, as the organization provides direct support to approximately 90 organizations every year, while sub-granting many more. There is also more information about the various types of grants and past recipients.

Policy & Advocacy

AIDS United has regional and national advocacy activities and users can learn more about them in this tab. Whether you want to get involved in advocating for policy initiatives, elections, or AIDSWatch, there is more information for you to take action here.

Capacity-Building Assistance

The final initiative in the tabs is Capacity-Building Assistance, which features information about how the organization provides “community-based organizations with the technical assistance and organizational management tools they need to most effectively respond to the epidemic where they live.” The organization has teams of consultants that help many communities around the country and you can request support here.
