Pledge to vote for ARA in the Chase Community Giving contest in September

This pledge closed 3 months ago

AIDS Research Alliance has been nominated to participate in the Chase Community Giving contest this September and we need your help! Chase Bank is giving away $5 million to 196 nominated charities who receive the most votes during the voting period (September 6th – 19th) and ARA is in the running to win the top grant of $250,000!

What will this money do for ARA?
Our organization believes that prostratin will significantly advance HIV cure research. With $250K, we will be able to fund the last four in vitro prostratin experiments in our lab necessary to begin the remaining in vivo experiments. This progress will lead to a stage where we will be able to test if this cure strategy is effective in humans.
