If you haven’t already, please consider a personal donation to the Foundation for Biomedical Research (FBR). For thirty-five years, FBR has served as the predominant and preeminent voice for the biomedical research community on the importance of humane and responsible animal research. It is FBR that communicates with the press and the public about an issue that is controversial and emotional. Universities, companies and researchers depend on FBR to speak out on their behalf and FBR has done this well throughout its history.
With public awareness, video, educational and media campaigns, they've shown the critical role animal research plays in fighting diseases that affect both people and animals. In 2015, FBR landed in the opinion pages of two of the country’s three top newspapers: The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Last week, they were nominated for their 11th Emmy Award for their TV episode on Alzheimer’s disease research, featuring legendary basketball coach Pat Summitt.
FBR speaks for institutions and individuals, but they can’t do their job without the involvement and representation of all of you. That’s why your tax-deductible, charitable donation to FBR is important. Every contribution, large or small, makes a huge difference to FBR. As the end of the year approaches, please consider giving what you can, whether it’s $15, $50, $1000 or anything in between. It all matters.
Thanks for your consideration and generosity. Together we will continue to make a difference.
