The Chordoma Foundation is an international organization; our work with scientists and physicians, research funding, and support for patients spans the globe. Likewise, we depend on the support of donors across the world to make these programs possible.
We have established mechanisms for donors throughout Europe to receive tax benefits for donations to the Chordoma Foundation. See your country below for instructions for making a tax-deductible donation. Additionally, donors anywhere in the world can donate by credit card in $USD directly to the Chordoma Foundation.
Through our partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), Canadian donors can make tax-deductible gifts to support cutting-edge chordoma research led by Canadian cancer researchers. If you’re in Canada and you would like to support advancing chordoma research and therapy development, please consider making a donation.
For more information or to get involved, please contact our Canadian Chordoma Research Initiative leaders, chordoma survivors, J. Edward Les, MD (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Steven Golick (email@example.com).
