DIY fundraisers are a great way to make your support go farther in the fight to #endPKD. The #DIY2ENDPKD campaign encourages PKDFOC supporters to put a personized spin on fundraising to support programs of critical PKD research, education and advocacy. PKD Foundation of Canada's Edmonton Chapter Coordinator, Sonia Chies, has become well-versed in running DIY fundraisers and offers some insight here!
Donate-a-Car Canada will facilitate all aspects of your car donation from the pick up to the final sale, ensuring that your vehicle will be sold for the highest sale outcome possible. They will then forward the net proceeds on to us here at PKD Foundation of Canada and we will send you a tax receipt!
