Nearly 19 years ago, a group of Saint Louis University patients and community members banded together to form the Friends of the Saint Louis University Liver Center with the mission to raise funds to support research at the world renowned Saint Louis University Liver Center for the treatment and cure of liver diseases, and to promote understanding and awareness of liver disease. Since 2003, we have presented the Saint Louis University Liver Center with more than $5,160,000 in donations. The contributions allow the research team to continue to make great strides in basic and clinical research in the treatment for all types of liver disease.
Raising funds and recruiting auction items are tasks always on the agenda in the Friends office – and you can help with these items from home. You can do a letter writing campaign or share your story online with friends and family (click on “Share your Story” below) and spread awareness about liver disease as well as raise funds for the research and educational programs at the Saint Louis University Liver Center. You may also hold your own fundraiser (click on “Host a Third Party Event” below).
Another volunteer opportunity which can be done from home is recruiting auction items for one of the Friends fundraising events.If you have a special skill and would like to volunteer (are you a writer, an artist, musician etc.) we would love to hear from you (click on “email us” below). We encourage new ideas and welcome new volunteers!!
