Who We Are

The Teal Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded by Laurie DeSimone and her family in October of 2014.  The Teal Foundation has received its tax exemption from the Internal Revenue Service (a copy of our tax-exempt letter from the IRS can be obtained by clicking HERE) and is an all-volunteer organization that has no paid employees.  Our mission is to support research for the treatment of ovarian cancer, including the development of a reliable diagnostic test to detect the disease in its early stages, and to support local San Francisco Bay Area agencies that provide support services for women and their families dealing with ovarian cancer. 

We attempt to keep our operating costs at a minimum so that the maximum amount of  donations raised will go towards the furtherance of our mission.
