Grow Allergy & Immunology Now (GAIN) Campaign
What is the GAIN Campaign?
The GAIN Campaign is our annual fundraising campaign to raise $300,000 to support a third Faculty Development Award for the upcoming year. Every gift you make this year, unless designated otherwise, will be directed to this effort to fund a third Faculty Development Award for 2018.
Why a Third Award?
Each year we see an increase in applications for our awards from young investigators needing support to establish their A/I dedicated research. They need our support to keep the specialty moving forward toward treatments and cures for allergic and immunologic disease.
Every year the Foundation grants two Faculty Development Awards of $240,000 each, paid out over three years. These Awards support the career development of junior faculty members in the specialty of allergy, asthma and immunology through basic and clinical research. Your support will make three awards possible in 2018!
Did you know that...
- We received 21 applications for our 2018 Faculty Development Awards
- Three of those were from institutions applying for the first time!
- 57% of applicants were women
