Our work is entirely funded by private donations – we receive no money from government. Your money will help us continue funding research into vitiligo and supporting people affected by the condition.

Participation requires a simple blood donation, and a mobile medical professional will work around your schedule to meet you in the comfort of your home and perform the blood draw. Donating is easy and fast, and you will receive $50 compensation as a thank you for your time.
