CF Foundation Seeks Input from Communities of Color

Cystic fibrosis affects people of many different racial and ethnic backgrounds; however, for many years there has not been adequate recognition or representation of Black individuals and other people of color within the CF community. The CF Foundation is working to deepen its understanding of this issue by listening to Black members of the CF community, other people of color with CF, and leading researchers who are focused on health disparities.

If you are interested in helping to shape the Foundation's efforts to create an equitable and inclusive community for all people with CF, we encourage you to complete this interest form: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KGQB7K9

To find out more information about how to become involved or what the CF Foundation is doing to address racism and discrimination, visit: https://www.cff.org/News/News-Archive/2020/CF-Foundation-Seeks-Input-from-Communities-of-Color/

Hearing from diverse voices is critical as we continue our journey to listen, learn, and take action against racism and discrimination.

Your support, no matter how much you give, helps ensure we have the resources to stay the course and find a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis. Because of you, we met the Stremick family match and raised more than $1 million on Giving Tuesday.

Thank you for your support, and for your commitment to the CF community. Our work will not be done until CF stands for Cure Found.

Happy Friday! We hope you’ve enjoyed our No Show Gala Spirit Week just as much as we have! Just a friendly reminder that today is the last day to place bids on your favorite auction items, and to make your Bid For A Cure donations. We are so close to hitting our matching gift goal. Will you help us finish strong? To view our Gala, place your bids, and make your donations please visit: https://finest.cff.org/centralpa. Don’t delay, the auction closes at 9pm tonight!

As of December 31, 2019, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, had unrestricted financial reserves of about 11 times its budgeted 2020 expenses, following a royalty sale in 2014. The sale was made possible by the Foundation’s successful venture philanthropy model, through which we have raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to help discover and develop breakthrough CF therapies. This and any future revenue from our model is reinvested into the CF Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives.

Our Story

Faced with insurmountable odds, but determined to save the lives of their children, a group of concerned parents came together in 1955 to form the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. At the time, very little was known about cystic fibrosis, but the tenacity and strength of CF families laid the groundwork for monumental progress in research, care, and treatment of a rare disease. Today, because of their hard work and the support of generous volunteers and donors, many people with CF are living into adulthood. Yet, we still lose precious young lives every day and will not be satisfied until there is a cure for all those living with this disease.

Hello everyone at CFF! We from United for Life - the Brazilian Institute for Attention to Cystic Fibrosis - would like to share with you and CF Foundation a new video we developed about Cystic Fibrosis Awareness that we have created for the CF Awareness Month in Brazil. Given that the Worldwide Cystic Fibrosis Day was on September 8th, September was chosen in Brazil to become the Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. We would like to count on your help to propagate this wherever you deem necessary to help spread awareness for CF. The link to access the video is https://youtu.be/00L1qBZNemI. We hope you enjoy the video!
