Ways to Donate

Memorial and Honor Donations

Giving in memory is a special way to remember a loved one and can also be a practical and positive way for family and friends to come together at a very difficult time.  We extend our deepest sympathy and condolences if you have lost someone close to you. Raising funds in memory of a loved one can provide a little comfort when these donations will benefit other families affected by amyloidosis.

Give a donation as a gift in honor of someone and for any occasion. If there is a friend, family member, or loved one that you would like to acknowledge along with your donation, please let us know. Your gift can be in honor of their birthday; to celebrate an anniversary, wedding or graduation; or just because they are someone special in your life.

At your request, an acknowledgment can be sent to the named person that you designate on your donation form. Print a donation form here.

To order a large number of memorial or honor donation envelopes or if you have questions related to giving in memory or in honor of someone, please call the Amyloidosis Foundation on 1-877-AMYLOID (877-269-5643) or email info@amyloidosis.org.

Matching Gifts from Your Employer

Awareness Ambassadors

One of the major hurdles we have to cross is raising awareness of amyloidosis. We are passionate about doing this and our grass roots Awareness Ambassadors play a vital role. Most patients were misdiagnosed several times before getting a correct diagnosis. We provide patients with the tools to go back to these practices and educate the physicians, so it won’t happen again. There are many ways, from local to widespread, to raise awareness of amyloidosis. We provide you with all the information you need to go out into your community and beyond to raise awareness. Contact us if you are interested in becoming an Awareness Ambassador. Our email is info@amyloidosis.org  or call us at 1-877-AMYLOID (1-877-269-5643).

Whether you are a patient, caregiver, doctor, nurse or friend, your opinion does matter. Advocacy takes place on every level, from local to national. Together we can make our voice heard. Join us and take action. Please contact us via email at info@amyloidosis.org or call us at 1-877-AMYLOID (1-877-269-5643). Advocacy opportunities include:

• Contacting local city or county government to find ways to promote awareness for amyloidosis.

• Sharing real life stories about living with amyloidosis through local TV, Radio and Newspapers.
