The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care.
Since our founding in 1955, we have worked alongside the cystic fibrosis community to effectively transform a genetic disease in a single generation - making CF one of the most amazing stories in medicine today. Read about the milestones we've achieved in pursuit of a cure for cystic fibrosis. Through our venture philanthropy model, we provide early stage funding to companies to develop breakthrough drugs for adults and children with cystic fibrosis. Our federal and state advocacy efforts support our mission of ensuring that everyone with cystic fibrosis has access to high-quality, specialized care. We evaluate policies and legislation through one lens: How would this impact people with CF and their families? At the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we commit to equity, racial justice, diversity, and inclusion as core principles guiding our efforts to provide all people with CF the opportunity to live long, fulfilling lives.
