November's Club Love black tie dinner and cabaret, hosted by the one and only Graham Norton, was held during the run up to World AIDS Day in London, and proved to be wildly fun and exciting.

Guests included Ellie Goulding, Pixie Geldof, Rod Stewart, Penny Lancaster, Dolph Lundgren and Darcey Bussell, who were treated to performances by Sam Smith and Anne Marie and entertained by a line-up of cabaret artists including the Gypsy Queens, Le Gateau Chocolat, and Pam Ann.

The evening raised over £1m for our local partner organisations working in Africa, providing support, testing and treatment to the hardest-to-reach communities in countries that criminalize same-sex relationships. 

Lord Harry Dalmeny of Sotheby’s was auctioneer, presiding over bids for exclusive lots such as an 18-carat white gold and diamond Bulgari Diva’s Dream necklace.

Vincent Reynes, Managing Director, Bulgari UK, commented: “We are proud to continue to partner with the Elton John AIDS Foundation in the creation of inspirational fundraising events which continue to achieve so much in the fight against AIDS across the globe.”

EJAF launches the world’s first social impact bond
to fight HIV/AIDS

The Elton John AIDS Foundation has launched the world’s first ever social impact bond to fight HIV/AIDS, supported by the Big Lottery Fund.

Our bond, the Social Investment Partnership, is a new way of funding HIV/AIDS interventions by focusing and paying for concrete outcomes. By identifying new cases of HIV and re-engaging those who have dropped out of HIV care, our SIP tackles the most difficult and entrenched HIV/AIDs related issues in South East London.

We have brought together private investors with the NHS, local councils and voluntary groups to bring about these outcomes using evidence-based interventions.

Email Pedro Sampaio if you would like to discuss making an investment.

Our communication with you: your preferences

We hold information on our supporters – whether collected at events or other activities, or found in the public domain – in order to understand their interest in the Foundation.

We do this to make sure we only send information that is relevant, such as invitations to our events and activities which build towards an AIDS free future, and to keep you informed on our pioneering work across the world.
We will not share your information with third parties. It is important to us to know that we are not sending you unwanted information and that we are using the right means of communication for you.

If you would prefer us not to contact you, or if you would prefer that we use a different method of communication for you (for example, by post or telephone) please let us know by emailing at any time. 

A thank you from Sir Elton

This year we provided over 750,000 people with an HIV test: the information that can save their life and protect their future. We absolutely couldn’t do this without all the support we receive from people like you.

You have made 2017 a special year. Thank you.
