Contributions toward a healthier tomorrow

Private donations are crucial to maintaining the high quality services that we provide to our families.  As a supporter of our Center, you participate in creating a unique, safe place where families affected by HD, regardless of their financial means or health insurance status are able to receive confidential multidisciplinary care.  A gift to the Huntington's Disease Center at Columbia University will bring all of us closer to our shared goal: a better future for families affected by HD. 

We appreciate gifts at all levels. No gift is too small.

A memorial gift to the HD Center is a living tribute to a friend or loved one who had HD. Many bereaved families encourage their relatives and friends to make a memorial contribution toward clinical and research programs--instead of flowers. The HD Center will inform the designated family of your gift. You will receive acknowledgement of your tax-deductible contribution.

Personal checks to the HD Center should be made payable to Columbia University with a notation in the memo portion of the check For HD Center Use Only and mailed to
