The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. We envision a life free of lupus.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy.

We will greatly step up our fundraising efforts to ensure we reach our disease-specific goals:

  • Reduce the time to diagnosis
  • Ensure people with lupus have an arsenal of safe and effective treatments
  • Expand direct services and increase access to treatment and care
