Find Out How You Can
The Myocarditis Foundation is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting people with myocarditis and raising awareness of the health issues that this condition causes. Our goal is to advance knowledge about this illness to help better diagnosis and treat the thousands of people affected by it every year. Whether you or someone you know has been affected by myocarditis or you are just looking to serve a greater purpose, there are many different ways to support the work of the Myocarditis Foundation. We could always use a helping hand – if you’re ready to lend one, here are just a few ways you can contribute.
Make a Donation
Since our organization is a nonprofit, we rely on donations to fund our operations on a day-to-day basis. Donating money is a generous act that will help support many of our activities. Some of the programs your gift enables include:
- Maintaining the worldwide myocarditis clinical database
- Collecting a blood sample for research
- Delivering information to patients and their families
- Educating emergency room nurses and pediatric nurse practitioners
- Building blood sample kits
Your donations are tax-deductible and can be given once or on a recurring basis. You may also make a donation to honor a loved one. Another option is to set the Myocarditis Foundation as your preferred charity on AmazonSmile, where 0.5% of your purchases will be donated on your behalf.
Attend an Event
If you’d like to engage with the community supporting myocarditis research, the Myocarditis Foundation offers a packed calendar of events. Attend a symposium focused on myocarditis education for laypeople or professionals, or join a golf tournament for a fun way to raise money toward a cure. Raising awareness among the public through these events is an essential facet of our mission, as too few individuals, doctors, and healthcare professionals truly understand this complex disease. Not to mention, helping out and meeting new people is fun!
Plan a Fundraising Event
If you’re passionate about raising funds to support those affected by myocarditis, we invite you to plan an event of your own. You have the freedom to determine what type of fundraiser you’d like to host, including:
- Dinners and receptions
- Community walks
- Sporting events
- Service learning projects
- Wine tastings
- And much more…
The Myocarditis Foundation will provide informational materials and speakers to raise awareness at your event and inspire attendees. We encourage you to promote your event with flyers and social media, as well as by posting it on our website.
One of the most effective ways to bring about change is to contact your state and local representatives to raise awareness. Having government funds directed towards myocarditis research goes a long way in the search for a cure. Elected officials also can bring the disease into greater public awareness, either through creating a Myocarditis Awareness Day for your area or by attending fundraisers. So, if you are planning a fundraising event, consider reaching out to elected officials in your area to increase your event’s influence.
All Help is Welcome
Don’t forget the simple ways to spread awareness about myocarditis as well. Talk to your friends and family members, and encourage them to learn more and get involved. Together, we can make the progress needed to treat and cure this disease. To learn more about how you can get involved, please contact the Myocarditis Foundation today.
