Help us advance research and support patients!
We are all going through difficult times right now. The impacts of this pandemic are multiplied for people with ataxia. In addition to gradually losing their mobility and the ability to communicate orally, affected children, adolescents, and adults have had to forego what little social, cultural, and sporting activities they once enjoyed. People affected by degenerative diseases lead a daily battle. Time is of the essence and mobility losses are often irreversible. We don’t have the luxury of waiting for a return to normalcy to help them.
Without you, it would not be possible to continue delivering our services and funding the most urgent research projects. We invite you to renew your contribution if possible, to the extent of your abilities.
Thank for your support!

A testamentary donation is easy to set up and generates a tax benefit. Above all, it is the best way to support the Foundation so that it continues to accomplish its essential mission in a sustainable way: to help people with ataxia and their loved ones, as well as to support the development of treatments.
Since 2006, the federal and provincial governments have granted a significant tax benefit to people who donate securities. If you donate shares instead of receiving the proceeds, your capital gain from the securities will be completely tax-free! You can significantly increase your final contribution to our foundation and also obtain a tax receipt equivalent to the fair market value of your securities at the time of the donation.
