Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.


IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS: To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:

- Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times

- Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)

- Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.

- Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has unrestricted financial reserves of about 12 times its budgeted 2021 expenses. These reserves are a result of the Foundation’s successful venture philanthropy model, through which we have raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to help discover and develop breakthrough CF therapies. With this model, we have received and may receive milestone-based payments, equity interests, royalties on the net sales of therapies, and/or other forms of consideration. These funds and any future revenue from our model are reinvested into the CF Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives.
