Until There's a Cure

Until There's A Cure, a national nonprofit foundation which supports awareness of HIV/AIDS and funds efforts to combat the pandemic. Complete background about our foundation is available at our website: until.org

Until There’s A Cure: Funding Sources and Granting
Founded in 1993, the Foundation's expressed goal is to raise funds. What distinguishes this Foundation from others seeking to help those facing this disease is that the sole source of financing for this effort is The Bracelet a simple yet elegant symbol reminiscent of the POW/MIA bracelets worn during the 1960s and 1970s. The Bracelet is the key source for funding efforts in HIV/AIDS education, care services, and vaccine development and was created as the cornerstone for the Until There's A Cure Foundation.

Since its introduction in 1994, nearly a million bracelets have been sold! In answering the question, How much of our funds goes to the cause you can see from our publicly available 990 reports to the IRS that, historically, just under 90% of our funds have gone to AIDS-related programs, including our grants to HIV/AIDS organizations and our own AIDS awareness efforts. Please feel free to visit Charity Navigators web site to obtain a copy of our 990 : charitynavigator.org

For the current generation of young Americans, the Foundation supports innovative education programs to encourage safer behaviors. The Until There's A Cure Foundation supports programs that teach teens and young adults, through peer-to-peer education, about the dangers of HIV.

For those living with HIV/AIDS, the Foundation provides financial support for care and other services. Funds include grants to medical care providers, hospices, food delivery services, and social service agencies, building support in the community for people with AIDS, so that compassion and care are the norm rather than the exception.

For future generations, the Foundation advocates AIDS vaccine development. A vaccine is the best hope for reducing the transmission of this deadly virus.
Our dream is that no one else will become infected with HIV. For those who are HIV positive, we are dedicated on their behalf to educating all people about the virus and the overwhelming need for love and compassion in fighting this pandemic.
