Mission Statement

The mission of the Lupus Foundation of Colorado is to improve the quality of life for people living with lupus by advancing community education and awareness; by providing patient and family services; by promoting research for the prevention, early diagnosis, effective treatment and discovery of a cure for the disease; and by advocating for patients, family and community. We strive to be the best resource for those with Lupus in Colorado.

Organization History

Originally organized in 1972 by a group of volunteers, Lupus Foundation of Colorado is the only nonprofit organization in Colorado dedicated to serving the needs of people with lupus and their families. Our mission to improve the quality of life for people living with lupus and to promote efforts for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure of lupus is facilitated by staff, numerous volunteers and a dedicated board of directors. Ongoing projects, interactive social media, support groups and a Stanford evidence-based education program are supported by individual donors, grants, corporate donations, event fundraising, and bequests are evidence of the depth and breadth of our efforts. With an annual budget of $215,000, our services reach those afflicted with lupus, their families, caregivers and friends.
