Our supporters share their PIH stories:

Sustaining support today and tomorrow

Simpson (they/he) heard about PIH through the VlogBrothers, John and Hank Green. “PIH earns trust, striving to make itself irrelevant by promoting systemic changes that allow communities to care for themselves,” they shared.

Austin “Gwiz” Gwiazdowski

Austin “Gwiz” Gwiazdowski was inspired to learn more about PIH in 2019 after seeing a video from John and Hank Green, the VlogBrothers on YouTube, highlighting PIH’s work in Sierra Leone.

Chris Brown, PIH Trustee, Creates Her Legacy Fighting For High-Quality Cancer Care

After retiring from her career as a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Partners In Health (PIH) trustee Christine Brown is now determined to make a greater impact on public health. To that end, she is donating her time, resources, and project management expertise to health-focused non-profits.

Securing the future—for you and PIH

Mimi spent time in rural Haiti researching child malnutrition and learned about PIH when a friend gave her “Mountains Beyond Mountains.”

A Legacy That Encourages Healing

Donna Nixon’s first gift to Partners In Health came after she watched the documentary “Bending the Arc”. Donna was impressed with PIH’s unique mission and community-empowering approach as she learned more, and began giving monthly.

Decades of Commitment

In the early 2000s, Al and Diane Kaneb were inspired by Tracy Kidder’s article “The Good Doctor” in The New Yorker and wanted to learn more about Dr. Paul Farmer and PIH. They knew PIH Co-founder Tom White, and asked Tom for an introduction.

An Enduring Legacy: Remembering Dr. Ward Cromer (1940-2017), Tom’s Circle Member

In the 1980s, Partners In Health co-founder and friend Thomas J. White funded PIH’s first clinic in Cange, Haiti, and said, “For the first time in my life, I was able to give with complete confidence, knowing my donations would be used in the best possible way.”

Kevin Buckley, a gift that lasts

For Kevin Buckley, Mountains Beyond Mountains was more than a quick read. The book, which tells the story of Dr. Paul Farmer and his life’s work, was a jolt that broadened his worldview, and a potent message to remember the world’s poorest people as he refined his will and life insurance policy.

Maura High and Peter Burian

As Maura High and Peter Burian approached retirement age, they wanted to give even more to support PIH. But they did not feel wealthy enough to make a large outright gift. 

Michael Chastain

Michael Chastain of Dripping Springs, Texas, started supporting PIH as a legacy donor after the earthquake. “PIH does more than have visions and talk; they achieve goals,” Chastain said. 

Sam Conlogue

Sam Conlogue first learned about Partners In Health as a nursing major in college. He connected with the organization’s philosophy instantly. “PIH’s model of building, teaching, and staying is inspiring,” he says.
