You can spark scientific breakthroughs which brighten hope for families.
As a Spark member, your kind monthly gift ensures life-saving medical research can continue without interruption.
Medical advances have drastically improved the survival rates of many diseases, but there are still too many people suffering and dying from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and genetic diseases. Research is the only avenue to ensure better diagnostic tools, kinder treatments and improved survival rates. And, by joining The Spark, you are helping to spark more breakthroughs.
By making a manageable monthly gift to the Perkins, you join a special group of people supporting new treatments and cures for the diseases to keep families together longer.
Perkins research teams currently rely heavily on a challenging grant funding model – that is, short term and often restrictive. Unfortunately, only 16% of medical research grant applications are funded nationally, despite some researchers spending months each year on submissions for projects with lifesaving promise.
You have the power to change this.
By providing a vital source of stable and predictable funding to Perkins researchers through The Spark, you’re supporting them to do what they do best and that’s tackling the diseases that most affect our community and loved ones.
You can spark the next breakthrough and bring hope to families right now.
