End-of-the-year Giving Campaign Soars for CF

January 15, 2008

With just a few clicks from supportive donors and a match from a wonderful CF Dad, 2007 ended on a high note for the CF Foundation. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is extremely grateful to all of those who supported us through online donations at the end of the year.

With your online giving help, the CF Foundation raised more than $800,000, which thanks to the CF Dad’s generous match, doubles to $1.6 million.

Wanting to inspire others, this CF father stepped forward with a challenge to the CF Foundation—he would match every dollar donated online from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. In just six short weeks, faithful CF supporters enthusiastically created gift registries, made general donations and chose to give their holiday presents through the Gifts for a Cure program, making this campaign a tremendous success. The money raised will help to fund research and education for cystic fibrosis in the upcoming year.

Online donations are still being accepted every day. Consider sending an e-Gift or creating a gift registry for your next holiday present. Your help can make a difference in the lives of those with CF. Thank you.
