Bria Fund End of Year Message
from Susan E Gingrich, Founder
In a few days it will be Christmas, then the end of 2019 and start of a brand new year. This year was one of ups and downs for the Bria Fund and me personally, but fortunately, many more, pretty high ups! As I prepared to speak at Winn’s FIP Symposium, I reflected on the amazing FIP progress since we lost Bria in 2005. In 2005, there was little to offer and no hope for FIP. This was unacceptable to me, and in Bria’s memory, I decided to do something about it, writing a proposal for the Bria Fund for FIP Research. I approached the Winn Feline Foundation with it, and several months later it was accepted by the board, with the understanding that I primarily would be responsible for its success, and if donations stopped, the stipulated fund would be closed. I took that challenge seriously. Through the Bria Fund and other funding sources, Winn continues to be the non-profit supporting more FIP research studies, than any other. Thanks to generous donors, both the Bria Fund and FIP progress are flourishing!
