As one of the most up and coming companies involved in the development of cutting edge CF treatments, the promise of Vertex medications including Kalydeco and other combinations of medications has created tremendous progress and hope in the CF community by addressing the root causes of abnormal mucous. With over $106,000 in charitable grants to the CFLF, Vertex has supported the tremendous growth of the organization since 2012.

In-kind Sponsors



The tremendous commitment of SalesForce to the non-profit sector has enabled an ongoing donation of this client relations management (CRM) cloud-based software. Valued at $15,000 per year, this program has revolutionized the ability of CFLF to track the lifetime of all grants and donations received across all campaigns and events, as well as all Recreation Grant payments tied to various funds. Cross-referenced information has become easily accessible through SalesForce, providing a tremendous empowerment to the CFLF management of data.

The generous support of Google AdWords Grants for Non Profits provides a $10,000 per month allowance toward increasing the online presence of CFLF, and awareness of cystic fibrosis, events, and the CFLF Recreation Grant program.  Thank you Google!
