Ninety percent of every dollar donated stays in Georgia to fund Chapter programs, resources and advocacy. The impact on the Georgians served and empowered by our Chapter is compelling, reaching 120 counties and new patients and communities. Our footprint in Georgia is far greater than our small fiscal budget and staff. The Georgia Chapter is a lifeline and a voice of hope for the 55,000 Georgians and families living with lupus. We also support the National LFA efforts funding and advocating for lupus research.
