Your in-kind donations and monetary support are the lifeblood of Help for HD families NFP. Without your support, we can’t meet our mission of aiding our loved ones. The best thing about your donations: 100 percent of every dollar we receive goes directly to benefit individuals and/or families affected by Huntington’s disease. There is no overhead- no paid staff, no office, not even any mailing expenses, since all communication is via e-mail. That means 100 percent of donations can go to providing the help our HD community needs.
*We have applied for our 501(c)(3) and as of now, it is still pending. However, donations can still be made. IRS 501(c)(3) recognition is (usually) effective retroactively to the earlier of 1) the organization’s legal formation or 2) the commencement of its programs. This means that the organization’s activities are retroactively tax-exempt and donations are retroactively tax-deductible to the donor.
