Target demographics: all women of child-bearing age, pregnant women, women considering pregnancy, the medical community, world wide.

Direct beneficiaries per year: This is nearly impossible to determine as our awareness Campaigns are often online ads such as facebook, our website and you tube. Our annual vaccine research award recipient also directly benefited from our scholarship to help further CMV vaccine research efforts.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Hand out CMV informational pamphlets and make phone calls to local media asking them to air our PSA.

Geographic areas served: all areas, particularly targeting women of child-bearing age.

Programs: Annual conference/gathering for CMV-affected families, called Making Tracks Together; annual grant award for CMV Vaccine Research; annual CMV Awareness Walk-n-Rollathons across the country, and PSAs which are airing on national television.

Mission:
The Brendan B. McGinnis Congenital CMV Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) dedicated to
raising public awareness about congenital CMV, to raise donations to support research for a vaccine
for CMV, and to affect change in the medical community so that physicians will begin to test women
for CMV prior to pregnancy. Ultimately, our mission is to save babies yet to be born from suffering
the often devastating consequences of congenital CMV by eradicating this common but potentially
life-altering virus.
Results:
In the past 6 years we have distributed nearly 27,000 informational pamphlets on CMV. We have held CMV Awareness Walk-n-Rollathons across the country for the past 5 years, raising awareness and donations to support our cause. We have professionally produced a PSA that is currently airing on national television in major cities across America. We present an annual award grant for Innovation in CMV Vaccine Research. We also have held a family gathering conference for the past 3 years for families affected by CMV across the country.
