Chordoma Foundation

New tools make community fundraising easier (and more fun) than ever

Champions Program landing page - screenshotFrom the beginning, the Foundation’s story has been one of patients and families coming together to accomplish the improbable. And after more than a decade, we continue to be inspired and grateful for the generous gifts of time, money, and hope that our community members provide.

But as a patient-driven organization, our continued success depends on the initiative of supporters like you.

Over the years, community members just like you have held nearly 100 fundraising events benefiting the Foundation. And we recently launched several new and updated resources that will make it easier than ever to turn your passion into action and help raise the funds needed to drive better treatments, better care, and a better experience for everyone facing chordoma.

New Online Fundraising pages

Our new online fundraising pages are modern, mobile-optimized, and social media integrated to make your fundraising experience as easy and productive as possible. Sign up for one or more of these new pages to help advance better treatments, better care, and a better experience for everyone affected by chordoma.
