Arthritis National Research Foundation Once Again Receives Accolade
For their outstanding cost-efficiency record, the ANRF (Arthritis National Research Foundation) received its 9th consecutive four-star rating, putting their charity at the very top of Americaâ€™s charities with budgets under 2 million dollars.
October 24, 2017 ( datsyn.com) – Independent and respected charity evaluator, Charity Navigator, sharing the same goal with ANRF of putting the money where its most effectively used, has placed the ANRF at the top 2% of America’s best charities.
Why is ANRF so Effective at Managing Donations?
There’s only one way to determine the value of any charity – how much of the donated money goes into running the charity vs. how much it goes into the actual goal of the charity. The ANRF is proud to announce that over 90% of every dollar donated goes into funding the research for arthritis, a condition that afflicts countless millions of people, young and old.
From its founding, the ANRF was set up to provide maximum transparency in all of its dealings, which made it easy to prevent any corruption and underhandedness. Therefore, every dollar donated is prudently spent for just the right initiatives and institutions.
Why is Curing Arthritis Important?
Despite common opinion, arthritis is a condition that can affect every person, no matter his or her age. Simply put, arthritis is a disease that causes the inflammation of the joints, either one or many. Accordingly, there are more than 100 types of arthritis, all of which require different treatments and have different causes. Two of the most commonly known arthritis types are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Arthritis causes swelling, stiffness, joint pain, reduced motion range, loss of appetite, pain and even anemia. In addition to lowering the quality of life, arthritis is one of the primary causes of disability, costing the economy billions of dollars. Furthermore, juvenile arthritis is one of the most common childhood afflictions diagnosed in our nation. It’s estimated that over 300,000 children are afflicted with juvenile arthritis, which makes the ANRF a children’s charity as well.
Donating to ANRF Means Investing in Your Future
Although arthritis can affect people within any age range, as one gets older the symptoms get worse, more numerous, and more joints are affected. It’s not the age itself that lowers the quality of life and productivity, but conditions like arthritis are the main culprits. It’s hard to envision yourself enjoying your retirement age when you have to deal with the symptoms of arthritis on a daily basis. So far, the ANRF has funded over 250 scientists who have produced new insights, new avenues of research, and most importantly, new treatments for many arthritis types. On average, thanks to your help, ANRF gives out 10 – 20 grants per year, accounting for $1.3 million research awards just in the last year. Nonetheless, they could accomplish so much more.
Thankfully, our great nation has tax deduction laws and regulations, which makes ANRF, with its stellar cost-efficiency track record, the ideal candidate for your favorite tax deductible charity.
The Arthritis National Research Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization, which funds a grant called The Kelly Award for children with arthritis. The award is named after Kelly Rouba who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when she was only 2 years old. www.curearthritis.org
