Co-founder Thomas J. White (1920-2011) supported Partners In Health for more than 20 years, creating a legacy of philanthropy that endures today. His faithful support and investment continues to bring lifesaving care to the world’s poorest and sickest communities.

Our work remains a testament to his belief that all people deserve high-quality health care. Members of Tom's Circle help sustain our future by naming PIH in their will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or annuity.  As a legacy supporter, you will be joining him, and others, in ensuring that PIH is able to care for the poor for generations to come as well as transform the way health care is delivered worldwide.

Membership in Tom’s Circle has no minimum gift level, as each legacy gift intention represents a lifetime commitment to PIH and acknowledges the future of what is possible through thoughtful partnership.
