Support our HIV Prevention Programs

Because 85% of our program funding comes from grants and private donations, we rely heavily on your generosity to support our HIV/AIDS services and research. Make a difference in the lives of our HIV/AIDS affected families through our donation opportunities:

The Jenny Camp Fund

The Jenny Camp Fund provides special support for families, including:

  • CTA and METRA passes
  • Emergency cab fare to the hospital
  • Gas and maintenance for the van
  • Box-lunches for families during their outpatient visits
  • Emergency housing assistance
  • Memorial assistance
  • Prescriptions and nutritional supplements not covered by medical insurance
  • Payment of utilities in emergency situations

The Jenny Camp Fund is funded completely through individual and organizational donations and greatly improves the quality of life for our patients.

The TARSYA Research​ Fund

The TARSYA Research Fund was established to support the laboratory and administrative aspects of providing cutting-edge clinical research. Examples of costs that may not be supported by government or industry sources include:

  • Special laboratory equipment for HIV-related research
  • Laboratory tissue samples and testing supplies
  • Research associates
  • Development of simplified diagnostic tests for HIV
