Please Help Us Meet Our #GivingTuesday $20,000 Challenge

We’re excited to announce that SRF has received a $20,000 Challenge Grant for #GivingTuesday from the Foster Foundation. Our great friend, Winslow Foster, will match every dollar we receive (up to $20,000) on #GivingTuesday, November 28th. Every person who makes a donation that day has a chance to win one of three SRF gift packs consisting of an SRF notebook and pen, a long sleeved T shirt, and a polo shirt. 

In addition, every donor who gives $250 or more on November 28 will receive a SENS Research Foundation t-shirt. Your donation will also make you eligible for our two month-end drawings for a free long sleeved t-shirt or polo shirt. So many ways to win and spend your holidays decked out in SRF swag, while knowing you're contributing to critical research toward cures for some of the worst diseases known to humanity. Please plan to support SENS Research Foundation on #GivingTuesday - November 28th. Mark your calendars, and make sure to visit our donate page on the 28th!

SRF's End of Year Campaign Needs Your Rapid Response

All over the world, people -- including our family members, friends, and other loved ones -- are suffering from age-related health problems that SRF believes could be cured and/or prevented with the right medical tools. The diseases of aging comprise a global emergency, and while genuine scientific progress doesn't exactly happen overnight, your contributions can start making a difference immediately.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported the SENS Research Foundation Year End Fundraiser so far. We are at $66,958 in our campaign! That's a fantastic start, but of course, we still have about $180k to go to actually meet the $250,000 goal, so please keep up the support (and tell your friends - we could really use your help to spread the word about this campaign on Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media platform you prefer).

Thank you as well to all our subscribers – we are now at $501/month! Remember, every dollar you give to our subscriber campaign will be doubled up to $3000. Please subscribe today and help provide ongoing support to our research, education and outreach efforts. Aging affects everyone, every day, and your generous contributions enable us to continue to work to defeat the diseases of aging. Show your support today and donate.
