All Greater Good was formed in July 2007 by Dr. Katja Van Herle, President and CEO, and Jacinta Behne, Executive Vice President. Dr. Van Herle’s passion and dedication to medicine for the cause of public health wellness and Mrs. Behne’s commitment to education through translational programs were the driving forces behind the organization and eventually gave birth to All Greater Good. As specified in the All Greater Good Foundation’s Articles of Incorporation, the specific purpose of this corporation is for “education and outreach programs that focus on public health issues and epidemics, as well as to fund basic science research pertinent to these issues.” The breadth of this language is intended to enable Dr. Van Herle and Ms. Behne of the organization to select and implement projects that have not received proper recognition, understanding, and response. Without the intervention and support of All Greater Good, worthwhile projects might not have the opportunity to develop and deliver their potential of benefiting substantial populations who are in need.
The All Greater Good Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.
