How you can help



Of course, everything we do at CD LAB requires resources. Since we incorporated as a not-for-profit in April 2015, we’ve been operating entirely out-of-pocket. We have recently begun applying for foundation funding in both Illinois and Texas. In the meantime, as we wait for those application cycles, we’re going to need your help and support; please also consider making a monthly donation to help us sustain our efforts. Thank you for your interest.

For more information, see our Case for Support.
