How To HelpDonate Today

Donate Today

We cannot do this without your help! Please give as generously as you can. We will use every single cent of your donation in the fight against vitiligo – either through research into the disease, doctor’s education or supporting those with the condition.


Here are some of our accomplishments to date:

  • Launched and funded the World Vitiligo Day campaign to increase awareness of vitiligo.
  • Created a networked Vitiligo BioBank and a bio-IT system Vitiligo CloudBank to support research.
  • Conducted Master Classes on Vitiligo in eleven countries, and educated over three thousand doctors.
  • Published over 50 articles, reviews and other papers, Q&A and books in seven languages.
  • Supported vitiligo groups in the United States and ten other countries.

We would also appreciate donations of books and educational materials on vitiligo for children and young readers, from pre-school through high school.

Books are currently needed for our Library Grant Project and community outreach programs and will be distributed to the libraries of support groups, schools, hospitals, and shelters. We generally ask for a minimum donation of 25 copies per title. All donations are tax-deductible at their current retail value. Please contact us at info@vrfoundation.org
