Thank you for considering a gift to the IWMF. As a volunteer organization with a very small staff, we depend on gifts to provide the services to support those afflicted by WM and to fund the research that will lead to better treatments and a cure for this rare, orphan disease. If you wish you can direct your gift to either the Member Services Fund or the Research Fund. The Member Services Fund provides for all educational and support services to WM survivors, caregivers and physicians, as well as the Educational Forum, the website and our quarterly newsletter, the Torch, while the Research Fund provides funding for research specific to finding more effective treatments for WM and, ultimately, a cure.
You can make a pledge to the Imagine a Cure Campaign.
You may want to consider the possibility of establishing a Named Gift Fund or becoming a Research Partner. Individuals making a commitment at these levels may want to consider supporting a specific research project.
You may want to consider making a planned gift by joining the Ben Rude Heritage Society.
You may be able to double your donation to the IWMF. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match. Click here to access matching gift forms from your employer.
