The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has unrestricted financial reserves of about 13 times its 2018 budgeted expenses following a one-time royalty sale in 2014. These funds, along with the public’s continuing support, are needed to help accelerate our efforts to pursue a cure for this fatal disease, fund development of new therapies, and help all people with CF live full, productive lives. To obtain a copy of our latest Annual Report, visit https://www.cff.org/About-Us/Reports-and-Financials/, email email@example.com or call 1-800-FIGHT-CF.
In an effort to provide a safe environment for staff and guests, we ask that you make all payments/contributions at CF Foundation events with a credit card or check. We accept all major credit cards. Thank you for your understanding.
Important Note on Attendance at Foundation Events: To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
