12DaysOfGiving To SRG


Goodworld Logo

We are just 6 days from the end of Goodworld’s #12DaysofGiving. If we can get the most new donations by 12/31/2016, we will head into the new year with not just your taxi-deductible donations but an extra $5000, enabling SciOpen Research Group to do a whole lot of good. Please donate today!

Comment on this Facebook post with the hashtag “#donate” + any amount (Ex: #donate $100) and we will reply with a quick, one-time form for you to complete. If you aren’t reading this on Facebook – if not, please go to https://www.facebook.com/SciOpenResearchGroup/, Like us, and find this post.

Remember, we have no salaries or overhead like building rental to pay, so 99% of donations go directly to research into a treatment for ALS.

Another way to donate is to go to http://www.sciopen.org/wp/donate/ and using our Paypal link. Or you can donate for FREE year-round by doing your online shopping at Amazon Smile and selecting SciOpen Research Group as your charity of choice or just go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/46-2581137. Every time you make a purchase this way, Amazon Smile donates 0.5% (one-half of one percent) of the purchase price to SciOpen Research Group, all at no cost to you!

SciOpen is run by and for PALS, so we are your research organization. Tax deductions are only available to residents of the USA (but international donors are greatly appreciated).
