Supporting the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation

The Canadian Gene Cure Foundation is a national charitable organization that endorses the donor bill of rights developed by fundraising professionals worldwide. We rely on the support and generosity of individuals and organization who share our values and our mission to enable Canadians to lead the world in the discovery and advancement of cures for inherited diseases.

Charitable gifts from individuals, corporations and foundations support:

Every single donation plays a key role in helping Canadian scientists discover important genetic links in a variety of diseases including diabetes, Down's Syndrome and cancer. In 2007, we were able to provide four research grants totalling $280,000 to research teams investigating new treatment options for highly debilitating genetic diseases including: Gaucher's disease; vitamin B12 deficiency; mitochondrial disease; and cystinosis.
