Lupus gains new awareness as an important cause among Manhattan’s philanthropic community with a significant article in today’s New York Observer, quoting the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation and other leading organizations on the status and upswing in charitable giving here and throughout the country.

The success of the Foundation and the Lupus Research Institute (LRI) in retaining strong donor support exemplifies the nation’s growing interest in lupus and recognition that private sector investment in the most novel and innovative research accelerates discoveries that make a difference.  As the article affirms, non-profit contributions are on the rise at the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation/LRI and elsewhere, demonstrating that outstanding, documented proven success in science and service effectively earns donations. With continued support, we can keep Turning Lupus Research Upside Down!

The lupus community is grateful for the increased awareness of the disease and invites you to join us in furthering our cause.
