Why donate to IGN?

Preventing iodine deficiency through iodizing salt is highly-cost effective, protecting the developing brains of children for just 5 cents per person per year.  This allows children to grow, learn, and contribute to the prosperity of their societies and their nations.  Our work has been evaluated and recommended by The Life You Can Save, Founders Pledge, Giving What We Can and GiveWell.

The work to reach everyone, everywhere with iodized salt is one of the greatest success stories in global health.  But salt needs to be iodized forever, and progress is slipping due to competing health priorities.  IGN is here to make sure that doesn’t happen, and by supporting our work, you are too.

You can give to us through the many fundraising charities who recommend us, who accept tax deductible donations on behalf of the Iodine Global Network in the US, Canada, and the UK. By clicking below you will be directed to the IGN donation page on their site.

Thank you.
