Sustaining Donor Club

What is a Sustaining Donor?

Sustaining Donors give monthly and play an important role in helping SBM train the next generation of behavioral medicine researchers, be heard by policymakers on the federal level, and reach real patients who will benefit from our science. Join our community of visionary supporters who are dedicated to improving health and quality of life through proven behavioral science.

What Kind of Impact will my Sustaining Gift Have?

With recurring gifts made by Sustaining Donors, we are able to maintain a steady and reliable stream of revenue for SBM – which is important now, more than ever as we continue to face multiple public health crises. The incredible support provided by this dedicated group ensures consistent, ongoing funding to leadership development opportunities, policy advocacy, and science communication efforts.

Thanks to ongoing gifts to the Proven Science—Better Health Giving Campaign, we’ve been able to:

  • Offer 4 new named awards to behavioral medicine scientists across all career levels

  • Provide Diversity Institute and Leadership Institute tuition assistance

  • Waive conference fees for underrepresented scientists

  • Release new Healthy Living Articles and corresponding press releases

  • Train our Policy Advocacy Ambassadors on how to build relationships with legislators

  • Share policy position statements directly with legislators and their aides

  • Contribute to the success of the science communication toolkit

With monthly gifts, SBM can better plan ahead to reach the most members and have the greatest impact. Ongoing monthly donations can be set up with a debit or credit card. The first charge occurs immediately and then on the first of each subsequent month. Become a Sustaining Donor today at
