Double Your Major Gift Donation—Now is the Time!

July 28, 2009

Two families, who have devoted more than three decades to fighting CF, have made $6 million available for major gift matches through the end of 2009.

Major gift donations of $10,000 or more will be matched dollar-for-dollar through December 31, 2009. Multi-year pledges at the Milestones Club levels ($50,000 or $100,000) or higher will be matched in their entirety.

The two families who established the challenge match have long been dedicated to supporting CF drug development, which they believe is the key to ensuring that all those with CF live long and healthy lives. By issuing this challenge, they hope to compel others to support the CF Foundation’s robust research program. 

Today, thanks to the CF Foundation and its generous donors, there are more than 30 drugs in the Foundation's drug development pipeline. And, for the first time, patients are taking drugs in clinical trials that address the basic genetic defect in CF, not just its symptoms. 

The Milestones to a Cure campaign is dedicated to building support for the development of new treatments and is approaching the final phase of its $175 million goal. “We are deeply grateful for the generosity of these two extraordinary Milestones families,” said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the CF Foundation. “Every gift is important to us, but thanks to these very generous friends, gifts given now will have an even greater impact.”

Help us advance the search for a cure and give now. This is too good an opportunity to miss!

To double your donation today, please contact John Lehr, vice president of major and planned giving at (301) 907-2594 or
