Thank you for helping us reach our $150,000 goal on Giving Tuesday to fund the 2023 Research Grants Program!
A special thanks to the 374 donors, 16 people affected by EHE who held successful fundraisers, and the countless individuals that shared their personal EHE story and our mission. We are grateful for your contributions and for standing alongside us in this fight against EHE, a one-in-a-million cancer.
For several years, Giving Tuesday has been The EHE Foundation’s largest fundraiser. It’s a global movement to celebrate and encourage giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year The EHE Foundation’s Board of Directors personally matched donations up to a total of $65,000.
Jenni Kovach, President of The EHE Foundation, said, “This day of generosity unleashed the power of our EHE Community to come together in the name of research. This $150,000 will fund the 2023 Research Grants Program, which is essential to the advancement of research for EHE. We do not take for granted that our work would not be possible without supporters like you. Thank you so much.”
In 2022 alone, the foundation’s research investment totaled a record breaking $541,600, which included funding the 2022 Research Grants Program. These EHE-specific research grants are ongoing at world-class institutions and include three translational science grants that aim to identify potential treatments for EHE. Thank you to everyone who showed their support for The EHE Foundation on Giving Tuesday. We look forward to sharing our accomplishments as we fund promising research in 2023.
