Itching for a Cure
Are you Itching for a Cure?
Itching for a Cure invites people who envision a world without eczema to raise funds for research to help make that vision come true. Join hundreds of people with a passion for ending eczema. Register and start your fundraising campaign!
Can my funds be matched?
Eczema champion ecz-traordinaire, Dr. Peter Lio, is challenging the eczema community to raise funds for eczema research — and he is matching the first $30,000 raised in May! For every dollar you raise in May, Dr. Lio will donate an additional dollar. Help meet the Itching for a Cure challenge goal!
How do I fundraise?
Your fundraiser can be whatever you dream up — an email and social media donation drive, a bowling party, a dress down day at school or work, a walk, a run or a cycling event. You can create a fundraising event around whatever activity you love, or simply raise funds through email and social media. It’s up to you!
Once you register, you have access to NEA’s Itching for a Cure website. This site lets you customize your story, ask for donations via email and social media, accept donations securely online with a debit or credit card and thank your donors.
How are donations from Itching for a Cure used?
The funds you raise will support NEA’s Research Fund. In 2023, NEA will award more than $1 million in research grant funds. This research is critical to understanding and improving treatment for eczema — and for coming closer to a cure. Learn more about NEA’s research program here.
When should I fundraise?
May is Itching for a Cure Month, so we encourage you to fundraise in May — and you can keep fundraising all year long! The Itching for a Cure website is available to volunteer fundraisers any time of year.
How can I achieve fundraising success?
Our IFAC Committee, led by NEA’s Vice President of Development, Melody Sugg, has advice to help you achieve your fundraising goals.
