DEDICATED TO IMPROVING THE LIVES OF THOSE AFFECTED BY CYSTIC FIBROSIS
The Elizabeth Nash Foundation was established in 2003 by her family to honor and perpetuate Liz’s lifelong example of giving and to continue her fight against Cystic Fibrosis (CF). The foundation is a donor supported 501(c)3 non profit, public benefit charity operated by a family board. There are no administrative costs or salaries. Donations are tax deductible and go 100% to programs and benefits for individuals with CF.
The foundation awards scholarships to assist persons with CF to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees. Grants range from $1,000 to $2,500 and are awarded annually. Since the program's inception in 2005, more than 100 grants have been awarded.
The foundation supports CF research through support of two programs:
The Elizabeth Nash Foundation Student CF Research Award for High School Seniors, a partnership with Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland
The Elizabeth Nash Memorial Fellowship for Post-Doctoral Research in CF, established and funded by Cystic Fibrosis Research, Inc.
