The NIH currently funds only 11% of its applications, leaving a heavy burden on private foundations and individuals to help close the shortfall gap. In this video, Dr. Morie Gertz from the Mayo Clinic explains where your donated dollars go. Thanks to a generous patron covering all of our administrative expenses, 100% of your donation will make a difference in finding desperately needed treatments to extend lives and a cure for this disease to save lives.
Being a registered 501(c)(3) public charity brings a responsibility to maintain a sound governance structure, cost-efficient operation, and transparency to our donors. Although we were founded in August 2017, we are extremely proud to have already achieved the Gold level Seal of Transparency by GuideStar, an organization committed to monitoring the nonprofit community and setting forth standards for best practices.
