Why your support matters

As an Organized Research Unit of the University of California, San Diego, the AIDS Research Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization. The ARI serves as the umbrella organization for more than a dozen HIV/AIDS research and care programs at UC San Diego.

  • We promote the exchange of scientific and clinical knowledge among our researchers and the San Diego community.
  • We help our scientists raise funds to purchase essential equipment and supplies.
  • We publish newsletters and sponsor training seminars.
  • And . . .

  • We receive no funding from the University, the state of California, or the federal government to fulfill our mission.
  • Donations are our sole source of funding. Your financial support is vitally important.
  • Please take a moment to review some of our sponsorship levels. There may be a gift size that is just right for you or your company!

    HIV will never cure itself but, with your help, we just might.
