Become a Friend of The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center

Those who host or co-host an event or promotion which raises $2,500 or more per calendar year for our Center become “Friends of the Center” for that calendar year.

Please let us know if you are hosting a fundraiser on our behalf—we would be happy to help promote it when possible.  As an acknowledgement of our gratitude, Friends receive a certificate of appreciation and are listed on our website.

Thank you to all of our Friends across the country who continue to host local events and promotions to further our global mission.
