Over the years, Clarius has supported various charitable organizations spanning a wide range of issues, locations and organizational size. The list below is a partial representation and will continue to be updated.
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is the largest charitable supporter of T1D research.
JDRF’s research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). As the global leader in the fight against T1D, JDRF’s research programs are comprehensive — addressing the hopes and dreams of every person with T1D for the best quality of life and a cure for this disease.
Foundation Fighting Blindness
The Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) was established in 1971 by a passionate group of families driven to find treatments and cures for inherited retinal diseases that were affecting their loved ones.
Today, the Foundation Fighting Blindness is the world’s leading private funder of retinal disease research. That funding has been a driving force behind the progress toward cures, including the identification of more than 250 genes linked to retinal disease, and the launch of 20 clinical trials for potential treatments.
Chicago Westside Music Festival
The Chicago Westside Music Festival (“WSMF”) is an annual music festival that is FREE to the community! WSMF was created to fill the void of cultural programming and outlets available to residents on the West Side of Chicago. WSMF helps establish the West Side as a destination for music and summer festival fun, drawing audiences from both local and citywide communities. The WSMF is produced by the Westside Cultural Foundation.
Chicago Public Library Foundation
Founded in 1986 by visionary civic leaders including Cindy Pritzker, J. Ira Harris, and Marshall Field, the Chicago Public Library Foundation is the exclusive fundraising partner to Chicago Public Library. Donors to the Library Foundation support the public library system’s most responsive and innovative programs, its acquisition of new technologies, and the development of its collections. This infusion of resources has helped to launch and sustain crucial programs and services that benefit Chicagoans of all ages living and working in all 77 neighborhoods.
