amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research

Volunteer Support 2010

In addition to the volunteers who generously serve on amfAR’s boards and advisory committees, the Foundation was fortunate to have the support of many committed individuals who offered their time, professional expertise, and financial resources for amfAR’s benefit between October 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010.

Bucks County Committee

The Bucks County Committee for amfAR is part of the Greater Philadelphia community, which was among the first to respond to the AIDS crisis in this country.

To date, these donors have contributed more than $4.6 million to amfAR, which the Foundation has used to provide grants and fellowships to 80 Philadelphia-area researchers.

Concerned Parents for AIDS Research

Concerned Parents for AIDS Research (CPFA) was created in 1989 by a group of parents who, spurred by Alison Gertz’s public revelation that she had AIDS, realized that young people everywhere were at risk. CPFA seeks to secure an AIDS-free future by funding basic biomedical and clinical research to develop a preventive vaccine and a cure for HIV/AIDS, and by working to raise AIDS awareness and encouraging parents to become actively involved in finding a solution to this public health crisis. Since its inception, CPFA has raised more than $6 million for AIDS research.
