Spring has sprung and with May upon us, it’s time to thank you for a successful Research Month. With our fundraising and research so intertwined we’d like to give you an idea of the current state of WM research and its future so we’ve put together a simplified snapshot of a complicated issue.
The WMFC is always proud to remind you that most of our donations go towards funding research. Donations also fund our goal of taking patient education programmes like the Educational Forums online to make them more accessible across Canada. Your donations also go to increasing the reach of our vital Support Groups across the country.
The WMFC has supported research from its inception and to date, we have given over $1.3 million to research projects. Our goal for the future is to increase our research funding by tripling our revenue to $300,000 a year, a lofty goal but a worthy one.
