Trusts and foundations

Funding our work provides vital support to the widely neglected rare disease community and gives hope to millions of patients

Rare diseases affect more people than cancer and AIDS combined, and have a devastating impact on people’s lives, yet there are a shocking lack of treatments available and a limited research effort. Findacure provides vital support to help patient groups advance knowledge, awareness, and treatments in their conditions. We rely on the generosity of charitable trusts and foundations to support our work in building a strong rare disease community and driving forward research.

We are incredibly grateful for donations of all sizes and would be delighted if your trust or foundation would consider providing support to enable us to continue our vital work with rare disease patient groups. Trusts and Foundations can provide financial support with an unrestricted grant or specific funding for one of our patient group empowerment projects.

If you are a representative of a trust or foundation that would like to hear more about Findacure, please get in touch with our Fundraising Manager via [email protected] to discuss potential funding opportunities.
