Planned giving fuels our mission into the future

Giving to the Vasculitis Foundation ensures that we can continue enhancing the lives of people affected by vasculitis. Your donation supports innovative research, earlier diagnosis, education, support and better treatments. Planned gifts from forward thinking donors will ensure that the Vasculitis Foundation thrives for generations to come.

The best way for me to stay positive is to help others. I’m a regional contact for the VF and regularly participate in the weekly support calls. Getting support from others is important. And don’t give up! It took two and a half years for me to be diagnosed with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN). If you already have a diagnosis, you’re ahead of the game. The VF is an amazing organization. They have created numerous webinars, funded research, helped open vasculitis centers, and much more. It’s because of everything they do with minimal resources, that I made the VF my ‘charity of choice,’ making an annual donation a part of my Required Minimal Distribution from my IRA. It saves me tax dollars and benefits the VF. Please consider supporting the VF for all they do.
