SBM's Proven Science-Better Health Giving Campaign

The Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) Board of Directors has launched the “Proven Science—Better Health” Giving Campaign to build members’ skills and more widely disseminate our science to achieve better health for all. We hope you will join us on this journey by giving today.

The General Fund provides resources to cover SBM’s most pressing needs and ensures that membership fees remain affordable. This fund allows us to quickly respond to changes in the field and members’ careers.

The Leadership Development Fund allows SBM to award research grants, travel funds, and training program scholarships to members at all career stages, so they can learn, network, and hone skills.

The Policy Advocacy Fund helps ensure public health laws are based on members’ evidence-based research. With your help, we can build stronger relationships with lawmakers so they make decisions based on science.

The Science Communication Fund allows members’ research to touch real patients’ lives. This fund provides dollars for things like press outreach, member media training, and our Healthy Living articles.

Ways to Give

Donate online or print off a donation or pledge form and mail directly to SBM.

We are increasingly seeing supporters choose to donate shares of stock instead of cash because of the combined tax savings, and have a stock form that you can access here.
