In the final months of the year, many charitable organizations begin reaching out for support to help power them through the coming year. Did you know there are more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the United States? However, 54% of donors give to the same 20 organizations! We’re sharing some information below to show you why the Turner Syndrome Foundation is a good fit for you this year!
What is TSF’s mission?
The goal of the Turner Syndrome Foundation (TSF) is to support research initiatives and facilitate education programs that increase professional awareness and enhance medical care of those affected by Turner Syndrome. Early diagnosis and comprehensive treatments over the lifespan may lead to a brighter and healthier future for all young girls and women with Turner syndrome.
How do you fulfill your mission?
Each year, TSF partners with physicians, legislators, industry leaders and more to raise a greater awareness through education, research, and advocacy – all while providing one-on-one support to patients on demand.
How will you use my donation?
We currently have exciting projects in the works! For example, the Turner Syndrome Council on Cardiology commissioned by TSF is developing materials to educate physicians on cardiovascular health in Turner Syndrome care. Did you know more than 50% of TS women will have a heart defect, putting them at a great risk of early mortality? Your support will help change this.
What makes TSF unique?
We never charge anyone to access the wealth of information on our website. We believe these life-changing resources should be available to those who need it, when they need it. Other organizations can’t say that.
Where can I learn more?
You can learn more about TSF by visiting the About Us section of our website. You can also visit our GuideStar and GreatNonprofits pages to hear testimonies and learn more about our specific programs.
