Help us Lead the Fight Against Autoimmunity This #GivingTuesday!

Help us Lead the Fight Against Autoimmunity This #GivingTuesday!

We’re calling on you, our amazing community, to join us for #GivingTuesday – a global movement unleashing the power of radical generosity.

Donations are an essential driver in helping us carry out our mission. Here are five ways we’ve been leading the fight against autoimmunity and how your dollars can help accelerate our work:

  1. Uniting the community: We’re stronger together. There are millions of people living with over 100 autoimmune diseases. In our work bringing patients, physicians, researchers and advocacy groups together from across autoimmune therapeutic areas we are helping accelerate autoimmune education, awareness, advocacy, treatment, and someday, cures.
  2. Driving research: Our organization has funded over $5 Million in autoimmune research and helped to secure over $3 Billion federally funded autoimmune research in the last three years. This research is the key to unlocking new treatments and someday cures for people living with autoimmune conditions.
  3. Facilitating Community + Connection: We’re helping give people living with multiple autoimmune diseases a much needed community. Our Inaugural Autoimmune Summit convened over 2,000 autoimmune patients virtually from across the country and around the world with over 4,000 messages exchanged and testimonials from attendees that they “felt very seen and heard” and loved “meeting so many new people with so much in common.”
  4. Delivering Mission Critical Resources: We maintain a comprehensive library of resources on over 100 autoimmune diseases and continually work to provide up to date information on the state of autoimmunity. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, the Autoimmune Association has brought together leading physicians and public health agencies to provide our community with the information they needed to navigate unprecedented times.
  5. Advocating for Equitable Access to Care: We are your champion on Capitol Hill, working tirelessly to fight for policies that bring equitable and sustainable access to care.
