The END Fund is a leading philanthropic investment vehicle with a mission to control or eliminate diseases that affect the world’s poorest people, specifically five of the most prevalent neglected tropical diseases (NTDs): intestinal worms, river blindness, trachoma, schistosomiasis and lymphatic filariasis. Since the END Fund’s inception in 2012 through the end of 2017, with its partners in 29 countries, the END Fund has provided: over 500 million donated treatments worth close to $933 million, over 11,500 surgeries for people suffering from the effects of the advanced stages of elephantiasis and trachoma, and training for more than 1.1 million people in NTD control and elimination efforts. In a short time, the END Fund has thus established a strong track record in private philanthropic giving.
The END Fund accomplishes its mission by:
· Mobilizing and investing resources to where they can have maximum impact;
· Advocating for innovative, integrated and cost-effective NTD programs; and
· Facilitating private sector engagement to end diseases of poverty.

To meet its ambitious growth objectives, the END Fund is actively seeking to expand its community of visionary and engaged philanthropists, foundations, and corporations committed to treating and preventing the spread of NTDs.
