Special Matching Gift Opportunity for Year-End IFOPA Supporters
Thanks to the generous support of the FOP community, the IFOPA had a momentous year filled with important milestones.
Together, we provided more than $500,000 in support of research at the Center for Research in FOP and Related Disorders at the University of Pennsylvania. We also celebrated the first anniversary of the FOP Registry, and funded three new Competitive Research Grants totaling nearly $110,000.
Four Quality of L.I.F.E. (Living Independently with Full Equality) Awards were granted in 2016 and the IFOPA organized signature events to propel research and continue bringing hope and support to families and individuals facing FOP. The 2nd FOP Drug Development Forum was held in Boston to advance critical research. The IFOPA also sponsored the Midwest Family Gathering—the first of many such events to help create a better quality of life for FOP families and share new research and information with people with FOP and their caregivers.
Please help us continue this progress and momentum into 2017 with your tax-deductible gift to the IFOPA Year-End Appeal. If you make your gift before December 31, it will be matched dollar for dollar!
Each donation made through December 31 will be doubled up to at least $10,000, thanks to a generous matching offer. There’s no better time than right now to make your support of FOP research and the work to find treatments and a cure go twice as far. Please let us double the impact of your donation and make your contribution today.
We hope you’ll also help us reach others to make the most of this matching grant. Please share news of the IFOPA Year-End Appeal on your social networks like Facebook and Twitter so your friends and family can join you in supporting the IFOPA. Thank you!
