Fundraising Support



Every fundraiser, whether small or large, helps move us closer to treatments and a cure for NPD.  Please consider what you, with the help of your family and friends, might be able to do to help advance our Quest for a Cure!   We thank you for your support!

The Canadian Chapter of the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (CCNNPDF) is a sister chapter to the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF) (U.S.) and receives administrative support from the NNPDF. Money raised through the CCNNPDF is invested in Niemann-Pick Disease research through the NNPDF's research program with guidance from the NNPDF's Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), Board of Directors, and Research Committee. This partnership helps eliminate redundancy and maximizes the impact of our research dollars. (Tammy Vaughan, chair of the CCNNPDF, serves as secretary of the NNPDF, and is on the NNPDF's Research Committee.)

CCNNPDF/NNPDF receives financial support for its family services and research programs from individuals, families, and organizations that conduct fundraisers on behalf of the foundation.  We are very grateful for this support. We encourage families to develop and conduct fundraising initiatives on behalf of NNPDF and we provide comprehensive guidance to help you get started.  We also have NPD Awareness Items available for family fundraisers.

Please carefully read the material in our Fundraising Packet before you begin your fundraiser.  Don't hesitate to contact the CCNNPDF if you have questions or need additional assistance. 

Here are some of the support options the NNPDF has available for those wanting to fundraise on behalf of the NNPDF.

If you are planning an event, please contact the NNPDF Central Offices and let us know how we can help raise awareness of the fundraiser across our web and social media sites.
