Let’s Work Together To Fight Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases

The Lyme Disease Association’s (LDA) goals are to find a cure for Lyme disease and to prevent others from acquiring Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.    According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), 328,128 Lyme disease cases were reported nationwide from 1990 through 2008. Since CDC has indicated only 10% of cases meeting the CDC surveillance criteria are actually reported, approximately 3,281,280 new cases of Lyme occurred over that time period nationwide.  Education, prevention and research are vitally important to help reduce the impact this epidemic is having on our nation and to minimize the suffering and pain caused by Lyme disease.

We need your help to continue our current programs, to develop new materials/services to meet the increasing needs of increasing disease burden, and to fund research to find a cure for this debilitating disease.  Please join us in this fight. Working together, we can help our states, communities, families, friends, and neighbors.

Lyme Disease Association – Incoming Grants

The Lyme Disease Association (LDA) is 501(c) (3) national charity. It is unique since it is an all volunteer national non profit, thus approximately 96% of funds go directly to programs. LDA depends upon public contributions and upon grants to perform its mission: Lyme and tick-borne diseases research funding, education, prevention, and patient support.

Grants are gifts of money that generally come from charitable trusts and foundations, public bodies, or corporations. They are tax exempt and usually come with specific conditions such as for a particular area of research or within certain time frames and may require a written report.
