Share Your Story
We will be collecting patient stories and photographs to post on our website, Facebook and soon, Instagram. The Wilson Warrior stories have proven to be inspirational and we think we need a way to collect any story.

Final Gift Plan

Consider WDA in a "Will" or Final Gift Plan
The Wilson Disease Association is 35 years old and is represented by board members from across the country and Canada. We have volunteers and partners globally and spearhead research that impacts our patients directly but affects a broader population beyond our patients. The long term importance of what the Wilson Disease Association does is limited only to the imagination because it affects generations of families around the world. Please consider the Wilson Disease Association in your will. Giving in this way is not restricted to the wealthy or a gender.

Corporate Matches

Let us help you find employers and corporate donors to match your donation.
As a benefit to employees, many companies increase the impact of their employees’ gifts to WDA by providing matching contributions. Most corporations provide a 1:1 match; while some companies will double or even triple the matching amount to further encourage and leverage their employees’ philanthropy.
