Partners for the Future
Creating a Family Fund has a two-fold benefit: it creates a lasting legacy with the Huntington Society of Canada (HSC), while providing financial stability for HSC’s mission to enrich the quality of life of those dealing with Huntington disease.
When you establish a Family Fund with HSC, you become a member of our Family of Fundholders. Your Family Fund helps provide HSC with a guarantee of support for crucial research, education and care services – now and for the future.
How Do I Establish a Family Fund?
A minimum contribution of $1,000 is required to establish and maintain a Family Fund. Funds can be pledged annually and directed immediately to HSC operations and programs like research, education and care to help families right away.
How Does a Family Fund Fund Work?
The name of your Family Fund is an enduring tribute to a beloved family member or an admired individual.
Anyone can contribute cash, stocks, securities or shares to your Family Fund at any time. Family Funds provides your family, company or friends an opportunity to honour your family by contributing to your fund on any occasion, such as Christmas, birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.
All donations to your fund will be receipted for income tax purposes.For more information on our family funds please contact our National office at 1-800-998-7398 or firstname.lastname@example.org
