The Fund A Cure campaign, which culminates during a powerful moment at Gala, is a unique opportunity for you to change the lives of children and adults living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), while creating a better world for future generations. Fund A Cure donations go directly to research, are 100% tax deductible, and fund science that is making medical history.
Since 2002, thanks to the generosity of the Greater Cincinnati community, over $8.8 million has been raised to support T1D research through Fund A Cure. Many advancements have come from this generosity, including Artificial Pancreas devices, Continuous Glucose Monitors, and disease modifying and cell therapies. We now find ourselves at an exciting and critical moment in type 1 diabetes research. While the pandemic continues to have an impact on operations and research funding, we have not altered our focus on finding cures and improving lives. In fact, exciting disease modifying and cure therapies are currently in trials or undergoing FDA review. In order for us to ensure these studies, as well as others in the pipeline continue, we need your help. Community support now, more than ever, will allow us to keep the mission moving forward so we can meet our current research commitments and make strategic funding decisions for the years ahead. Giving now to the Cincinnatian of the Year Gala will meet the immediate needs of our research agenda and mission.
