Making Donations towards MPN Support and Research in Canada
With the year-end approaching, many of us are looking to make donations to organizations we think are worthy of our support. Here are a few ways you can help organizations that make a difference in the lives of MPN patients.
To Donate to MPN Patient Support in Canada
Through the Canada Helps Organization
Go to CanadaHelps.org and search on “Canadian MPN Research Foundation” in Find a Charity. A link to this group will appear. Click the link and you’re ready to make a donation. Be sure to add “For Canadian MPN Network” in the message window before continuing with your donation. This will direct your donation to the Canadian MPN Network. If you wish part of your donation to go towards MPN research, include in the message above what percentage of your donation is to go toward patient support (Canadian MPN Network) and what percentage toward research (Canadian MPN Research Foundation).
A tax-deductible receipt will be emailed to you right away.
