Some Canadian WM patients are not in a position to make a financial contribution at this time.  We are as committed to those patients as any other and encourage you to send a Note of Appreciation to the WMFC. Our volunteers are always buoyed to hear we are making a difference in your lives.

Additional Information on donating to the WMFC

  • The WMFC will issue a Canadian tax receipt for all donations of $25 or more to be sent by email, where possible.
  • Being a volunteer organization, the WMFC operates with a very low overhead of between 10 -15% of donations.  After the funding of our support of member services, that leaves approximately 75% of our donations to fund research, which can enhance the quality of life for those with WM and ultimately find a cure.
  • Special contributions of “IN HONOUR OF” or “IN MEMORY OF” are available by completing the appropriate area on the DONOR or ONLINE Forms.  WMFC will send out a Tribute Card to the named party.
  • All online donations take place on a secure server with no credit card information stored on this website.
  • Contributions are voluntary and any patient, caregiver or family member may become a member of the WMFC at no cost by completing the Membership application form on this website.
  • WMFC is the only charitable organization in Canada to focus exclusively on WM and its patients.
  • In recognition of all the charitable requests individuals receive each year, the WMFC commits to having only two charitable requests during the year.  The first will be a designated Research Month where we hope that WM members and their friends will contribute to the latest research project(s) which the WMFC has selected to fund.  The second request will be made at the end of the year where we will ask our WM members to support our Imagine A Cure campaign where we are attempting to raise $1,000,000 in support of WM research and member services.
