Welcome to the National Ataxia Foundation

 

Research Matching Gift Challenge
Has Been Reached!

Due to the generosity of YOUR research donations, the $200,000 Research Matching Gift Challenge has been reached! Currently, more than 100 quality ataxia research proposals from scientists in 19 countries are being considered. Because of your support, the most promising of these studies will be funded in late December of this year.

Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s ataxia research drive, to all who made research donations throughout the year, and to the anonymous donor who made this research match challenge possible.

Together, we are making a difference. Together, we can end ataxia.

Thank you for your support!

International Ataxia Awareness Day (IAAD)

The goal of International Ataxia Awareness Day is for everyone to participate in some activity, creating awareness about ataxia. Thank you to all who have participated in International Ataxia Awareness Day through various events, receiving proclamations, and letting others know about ataxia. Even though International Ataxia Awareness Day is held each year on September 25th… Let’s keep spreading the word about ataxia each and every day!
