Matching Monday Program:
**The Jurrens Family Foundation will match dollar for dollar, up to a total of $40,000 the donations directly contributed or raised each week (beginning 4/4/16 and ending 10/3/2016) by the qualifying participants of the "Matching Monday" fundraising contests for the 2016 Portland Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge. Donations received in excess of the matching goal will support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has unrestricted financial reserves of about 13 times its budgeted annual expenses, following a one-time royalty sale in 2014. These funds, along with the public’s continuing support, are needed to help accelerate our efforts to pursue a lifelong cure for this fatal disease, develop lifesaving new therapies and help all people with CF live full, productive lives. To request a copy of our Strategic Plan, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800 FIGHT-CF.
