Examples of how your contributions make our work possible:

  • $100 allows for 10 In-Lab Tick Tests to determine Lyme infection
  • $500 creates an Educator Stipend for In-School Lyme Awareness & Education
  • $10,000 is the cost of an ecological survey like the Bay Area Tick Study assessing tick infection rates and Lyme risk
  • $50,000 is the average research grant for new diagnostics or treatments
