A graduate of the University of Missouri at Kansas City’s MBA program, Bradley DiTeresi works as a financial professional in Kansas. Bradley DiTeresi supports several nonprofit organizations, including the Lupus Foundation of America.
The only national organization that seeks to solve the mystery of lupus, the Lupus Foundation of America raises funds to improve the quality of life for those who have lupus through advocacy, education, research, and support. It also seeks to reduce the diagnosis time, ensure those with lupus have safe, effective treatments, and expand services, treatment, and care.
Those interested in donating to the organization can do so through a variety of means, including:
* Donating stock. People who donate stock do not need to pay capital gains taxes, sales commissions, or brokerage fees. Financial advisors or brokers can assist with this type of donation.
* Giving a vehicle. The organization accepts trucks, boats, cars, or RVs. Depending upon the value, donors may qualify for a tax deduction.
* Planning a fundraising event. Individuals can create their own unique event to raise funds for lupus research and education, based around interests like biking, cooking, or running.
* Contributing funds. With a year-end tax-deductible donation, people can support lupus research. They also can opt to make a monthly donation.
Bradley DiTeresi completed his undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Kansas and pursued graduate studies in business administration at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC).
