Support a student with lupus! Give.


110 scholarships ... and counting!

The generosity of people like you has enabled students to pursue an education while overcoming lupus.

L.I.F.E. maintains no offices, pays no salaries, and has no budget for advertising, so the highest percentage of your donation goes where it is needed: directly to our inspiring winners.

It's working. Students that might otherwise drop out are staying in school, remaining active, and are striving toward independence. Click here to view the L.I.F.E fundraising letter.

With your tax-deductible donation, we can continue to help students with lupus in their struggle. Our hope is to be able to increase scholarship amounts for each winner and to provide renewable scholarships. With your dollars we will be able to increase awareness of the L.I.F.E scholarship and of lupus. Please contribute today.

Take Advantage of Your Company's Matching Gift Program

Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees. For example, if a donor works for XYZ Corporation and donates $500 to L.I.F.E, XYZ Corporation will double the donation by also writing a check for $500 to L.I.F.E.

Matching gift programs are offered by companies across the world. In fact, about 65% of Fortune 500 companies (and many others) match employee donations. That means millions of individuals work for companies that match donations from employees.

Using a matching gift program is easy. Just follow the steps below:

  1. Make a donation to L.I.F.E.
  2. Find out if your employer or your spouse’s employer offers a matching gift program.
  3. Locate and submit the 'matching gift form' provided by the employer.
  4. Once L.I.F.E receives the matching gift form, they will verify your donation and submit the form back to the company.

Shop on Amazon will make a donation to L.I.F.E when you shop through Amazon Smile. Simply click here or go to and select Lupus Inspiration Foundation for Excellence as the charity of your choice. Any purchase that you make donates a percentage to L.I.F.E without increasing the cost of your product.

Other Ways to Give

  • Wedding donations - Said to bring good luck and fortune to the happy couple, instead of buying favors for guests, the bride and groom take that money and donate it on behalf of L.I.F.E. Donations can be in the form of a general donation or the couple can choose to take the money and sponsor a deserving student of their choice.
