2017 Fundraising Goal: $150,000

Total Raised so far: $50,000

Please join us in our fight to find a cure for VWMD!

We are focusing our fundraising efforts on supporting research at VU University in Amsterdam where Dr Marjo van der Knaap and her team have had success in identifying drug treatments that have shown promise in helping the affected VWM genes function properly.  Without our support, her research efforts will be on hold until other funding sources can be identified.

How can you help??

  • Spread the word to the world!  Like us... 

  • Have your employer match your donations.

  • Hold a fundraiser. 

100% of your donation will help fund VWM specific research! Thanks to generous donations of time and money for administrative costs, all of your donation will support research. The Foundation has no paid employees, officers or trustees. We do not use contributions for individual patient support.


Employer match.  Many employers will match your contributions to registered charities.  Check with yours, and double your contribution to VWM research!
