Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Pret is proud to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs, leading to persistent and extensive lung damage and respiratory failure. The CF Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure for CF, and nearly every CF-specific treatment available today was made possible with its financial support.

As a sponsor of the annual American Airlines Celebrity Ski event, a Pret favorite for many years, we have helped raise over $40 million to help in the quest for a cure for CF.

In 2023, Pret donated 10 special edition CF Fury X helmets that were auctioned off on opening night of the event, helping to raise over $50,000.

The Pret team is delighted to support such a worthy cause. Over a 38-year period, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been instrumental in strategically advancing the mission to make CF stand for “Cure Found”. Life expectancy for those born with CF was just 17 years when the American Airlines Celebrity Ski event began. Through the fantastic work of the foundation’s investment in science, life expectancy is now over 50 years.

Pret is optimistic for the future when a cure for all those with CF is reality.

Payment Info

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has unrestricted financial reserves of about 10 times its 2023 operating budget. These reserves are largely a result of the Foundation's successful venture philanthropy model, through which we have raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to help discover and develop breakthrough CF therapies. These funds and any future revenue from our model are reinvested into the CF Foundation's mission to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives.
