Happy Holidays from the PKD Foundation of Canada!

With 2019 drawing to a close, we hope you remember the PKD Foundation of Canada in your holiday plans and consider making a year-end gift to help advance Canadian research, advocacy and support for more PKD patients and their loved ones.

Your gift this holiday season
will give hope to those affected by PKD!

The mission of the PKD Foundation of Canada is to strengthen national programs of research, advocacy, education, support and awareness in order to discover treatment options that will improve the lives of the 66,000 Canadians and 12.5 million people globally affected by this disease. Our vision is that no one suffer the full effects of PKD.
Your support - no matter the size - helps to strengthen these front-line initiatives, and will also allow us to continue being a national leader of clinical research and fellowship funding in the field of PKD.

As the end of the year closes in, time is running out on tax deductible donations. About 25% of Canadians take advantage of the sizeable benefits Canadian Federal and Provincials governments offer to Canadians who give to registered Canadians charities.

These tax incentives are significant, amounting to as much as 53% of your charitable donation. For many Canadians, it’s by leveraging these tax benefits that they can give more generously to
charities. It makes them feel good and with their larger gift, it enables the charities they support to do more.

At the PKD Foundation of Canada, the needs for advanced treatment options and increased support of those living with PKD and their loved ones continues to grow. Please consider keeping us in mind as you make your end-of-year donation. 

Send Your Loved One a PKD Holiday Card This Year!

Loved ones on your holiday shopping list this year may appreciate a donation made to the PKDFOC in their name, rather than receiving a tangible gift.

When making your online donation, simply provide your honouree's contact information to ensure they receive a card from us letting them know a gift has been made in their honour.


With our collective efforts, we will keep moving closer to discovering new life-saving treatments for ADPKD and ARPKD. 
From all of us at the PKD Foundation of Canada, we wish you and your loved ones a healthy holiday season and a very Happy New Year! 

Sincerely yours,

Jeffrey Robertson
Executive Director
PKD Foundation of Canada
