About 

The Cystic Fibrosis Support Network of Michigan (CFSN) charity serves the CF community.  As a result, the CFSN charity relies on donations and Gifts In Kind to fund services.  In addition, all the CFSN charity board members are volunteers. 

Definitely, the Cystic Fibrosis Support Foundation of Michigan (CFSN) is a certified 501.3.c charity. For this reason, all your donations tax deductible.

Equally important, this charity was formally known as Michigan Pulmonary Disease Community, Inc. (MPDCI). Moreover, as a charity, CFSN has been operating since 1972.

Name Change

Whenever someone outside our community heard MPDCI they asked what it meant. But, responding with Michigan Pulmonary Disease Community, Inc. did little to help. As a result, a clarifying conversation was needed. Obviously, cystic fibrosis would be tied into both pulmonary and disease during the discussion.  

With this in mind,  board members changed the name in 2008. In order to clarify, the board added the words ‘cystic fibrosis’ and ‘support’ to the name. Immediately, Cystic Fibrosis Support Network of Michigan is clear. The name explains the CFSN charity focus. Ultimately, the name also supports the mission of the CFSN charity.
