Support Our Efforts

Together, we can make C. diff infections history.

Peggy Lillis Foundation relies on the support of hundreds of people like you who share our commitment to ending harm related to C. difficile and antibiotic resistant infections. Your generosity allows us to raise C. diff awareness, support people struggling with the disease and their loved ones, train and empower advocates, and continue to push for policies to minimize the harm caused by this largely preventable infection.

Ways You Can Help

Your dollars directly create the opportunities for PLF to create education, provide support and advocate for change. Giving a few dollars as a one-time gift – or on a monthly basis – are the fuel that drives our work.

Honor and Memorial Contributions

Give loved ones the opportunity to honor a friend or family member who has been affected by C. diff by creating a page in honor of a survivor, or to memorialize the life of a loved one. To donate in honor or memory of someone, please check that box under “This donation is…” on the donation form.

If donating in memory or honor of someone by check, please let us know in the memo section of your check. Checks should be sent to Peggy Lillis Foundation, 415 Avenue C, #4D, Brooklyn, NY 11218.

    • A chance to be featured in a story for our monthly newsletter.

Become A C. diff Champion

November is C. diff Awareness Month. It’s a perfect opportunity to help raise awareness and funds for PLF by becoming a C. diff Champion. Champions commit to raising at least $250 for PLF, through social media and by email, by hosting a Zoom Happy Hour or Dance Party, or committing to do a run/walk. Whatever you choose to do, you will be a Champion for the hundreds of thousands of Americans who battle C. diff each year.
