We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday – a global day dedicated to giving back.
Join the movement with us! Make the PKD Foundation your charity of choice on #GivingTuesday by donating on Tuesday, Dec. 2. Your donation will directly support the 15 PKD research grants we have committed to fund over the next two years.
The grants were awarded in April 2014 to support the critical research being done to find treatments and a cure for PKD. Five of the research grants target therapy development. The other 10 are centered on discovery research that examines the development and enlargement of PKD cysts, including three focused on ARPKD and one studying polycystic liver disease (PLD). Discovery research is critical because it allows us to understand the cell pathways that contribute to PKD so we can explore the most effective methods for treatment.
Our goal on #GivingTuesday is to raise $7,200 – the amount needed to fund a month's worth of PKD research.
