CFID works with strategic partners and supporters to hasten
the discovery of innovative solutions to better understand,
diagnose, prevent, control and treat existing and
emerging infectious diseases that threaten our good health.

Ways to Donate

There are many ways you can support CFID including volunteering your time and expertise, as well as various forms of financial donations:

Directed Donations

We encourage you to assign your donation to an area you believe important and worthy of your support. If you want your donation to benefit a specific issue or area related to infectious diseases, you can request to apply your donation to a specific fund (see list of funds).

Unrestricted Donations

Giving an unrestricted donation ensures that your gift is applied to essential projects most in need of funding. If you know you want to support CFID but are unsure which area to donate to, please consider an unrestricted donation.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching programs that allow you to double or triple your gift by matching it through your employer or your spouse’s employer. We encourage you to check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company has a matching gift program.

Gifts to Remember

Gifts in memory of a friend or loved one who has passed on is a wonderful tribute. These much-appreciated donations continue to pay homage to loved ones while helping to protect others.

Gifts to Honour

Honouring a colleague, friend or family member with a donation made in his or her name is a beautiful gift that is ideal for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, retirements or weddings. We welcome your Gift of honour to the Foundation and send recognition to the individual you designate.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts include a variety of options with special tax advantages. These donations can include gifts given through your estate (bequests) and they are an opportunity to provide a legacy for the future.
