Hope Champion logo social

We are proud to announce a new giving circle designed to recognize and thank our major supporters. The Hope Champions Circle recognizes supporters like you who are making a significant impact in the lives of those affected by autoimmune disease. When you give $500 or more, you become a Hope Champion — a special person making a difference in the fight against autoimmune disease and providing hope for those who need it most.

Special Benefits Just for YOU!

As a Hope Champion, you will receive annual benefits, including:

  • Recognition of generosity: Your contribution will be acknowledged on the Autoimmune Association’s website and in the annual report, celebrating your commitment to the autoimmune community.
  • Commemorative magnet: Proudly display your commitment to the cause with a special Hope Champion Circle magnet.
  • Exclusive updates: Receive first-hand updates on how your generosity is making a difference, offering a deeper understanding of the impact you’re creating.
  • Virtual Meet & Greet with our president and CEO: Get an invitation to a special meet and greet with the president & CEO of the Autoimmune Association. This is your chance to connect personally with our team, fellow donors, and other inspiring individuals.
  • Special access to the Autoimmune Community Summit: Enjoy VIP access to our annual summit and the opportunity to interact with leading researchers, scientists, and healthcare professionals.
  • Share your story: We offer the opportunity to share your donor journey with the autoimmune community through various channels, amplifying your voice and inspiring others.

The Power of Your Support

Your donation gives hope by funding critical research, services and resources, and advocacy efforts. It’s not just about the money; it’s about providing hope and making a tangible difference in people’s lives.

In 2023, gifts from donors like you helped fuel major accomplishments such as:

  • The Autoimmune Community Summit, which brought together 2,000 patients, medical providers, policy experts, advocates, and more to share information, provide inspiration and support, and build a strong community.
  • The development of a new online patient support program that advances our work to identify disparities in the diagnostic journey among under-resourced communities.
  • Deepened understanding amongst autoimmune disease researchers who are focusing on new diagnostic and treatment options.
  • Through our advocacy work, pushed for patient-first policies that improves access to care at the state and federal levels.
  •  Increased funding for and greater coordination of the newly created Office of Autoimmune Disease Research at the National Institutes of Health.
