Invest in Cures

Curebound

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN






The Founder’s Fund Campaign is Curebound’s philanthropic effort to bring experts from San Diego’s unique ecosystem of life sciences, research institutes and clinical settings together with the philanthropic community to ignite collaborative work for higher levels of discovery.

The Founders Fund will provide $25 million towards Curebound’s goal of investing $100 million in collaborative cancer research in San Diego over the next decade. As of September 2022, the support of our mission and trust shown in our vision is demonstrated by the $21.4 million already secured towards the initial $25 million Founders Fund goal.

All gifts received between now and December 31, 2022, will be count towards this important initiative to mobilize San Diego toward cures.
