Supporting the work of WHO and partners to help countries prevent, detect and respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.


The Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO) is the only way for individuals, corporations, foundations, and other organizations around the world to directly support the work of WHO and partners to help countries prevent, detect, and respond to the Covid-19 pandemic, especially where needs are greatest. Money raised through the Fund can be disbursed at speed and flexibly, so it gets where it is most needed as quickly as possible.

The Fund is aligned with the priorities outlined in the WHO Covid-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan (SPRP), outlining the global public health strategies to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

The SRF is powered by the WHO Foundation, in collaboration with the UN Foundation and a global network of fiduciary partners. For additional information about the Fund’s current investment priorities, please visit the SRF website.

Making a donation through CAF

As the UK fiduciary partner of the WHO Foundation, CAF is able to facilitate tax-effective donations from UK donors. Please see below for different donation options available:

Please note that all donors giving to the WHO Foundation certify that they are neither employed in, nor possess a significant financial interest (more than £3,838 - equivalent to CHF 5,000) in the arms, alcohol or tobacco industry. Donations from governments and their bodies, as well as donations from entities affiliated with the arms, alcohol or tobacco industries cannot be accepted and will be returned if received.
  • I have an account with CAF

    You can request the donation online by logging in and selecting the ‘donate overseas’ option. You can then enter the ‘WHO Foundation’ as the charity name and select ‘Switzerland’ as the country.

  • I would like to make a one-off donation by credit / debit card

    • In the meantime you can make a non-tax effective donation by debit / credit card on the WHO Foundation website
