Announcing a special donation match program for World Sjögren's Day 2024. This program is sponsored by Amgen in honor of the Sjögren's Foundation's 40th Anniversary. 

Join us in celebrating World Sjögren’s Day on July 23rd! World Sjögren's Day was created by the Sjögren's Foundation to raise much needed awareness for Sjögren's. July 23rd is the birthday of Dr. Henrik Sjögren, the Swedish ophthalmologist who discovered Sjögren's. Every July 23rd, we honor Dr. Sjögren and the millions of Sjögren's patients while spreading awareness about this systemic and serious autoimmune disease.

This year, we are extremely thankful to Amgen for offering a $40,000 fundraising match to commemorate the Sjögren’s Foundation’s 40th anniversary and World Sjögren’s Day! Their generous offer ensures your gift provides even more support for the Foundation and its initiatives.
