The Center for Asbestos Related Disease (CARD) Foundation was established in 2008 to develop relationships and financial resources in support of CARD. A completely separate 501c3, tax-exempt entity from CARD, the Foundation accepts gifts on behalf of CARD and works to fund both present and future needs of the clinic. The CARD Foundation mission is to seek sources of funding to support the goals of the Center for Asbestos Related Disease. The immediate goal of the Foundation is to fund the healthcare, research, and outreach needs of CARD.
The Libby Center for Asbestos Related Disease clinic does more than just diagnose and aid in treatment for people in Libby who have been affected by Asbestos disease. CARD Foundation aids in asbestos research and diagnoses that help people nationwide who have been affected by asbestos-related health issues.
