About the Organisation
The FSHD Global Research Foundation is a multi award winning Foundation that focuses on finding treatments and a cure for the debilitating disease Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD). In doing so, we fund world-class medical research, awareness and education. We are also committed to complete transparency and accountability in our operations.
The Foundation was established in 2007 by Bill Moss AO, a well-known Australian businessman and philanthropist who has FSHD. Since then, we have been addressing the chronic lack of medical funding and awareness of FSHD, both in Australia and globally. Over the past 9 years, the Foundation has committed $9 million to fund over 40 ongoing medical research grants in 9 countries; the USA, Canada, the Netherlands, Italy, France, Belgium, Spain New Zealand and Australia.
The FSHD Global Research Foundation does not operate like an average not for profit. We allocate 100% of the tax deductible donations we receive to current and future medical research grants. We are also transparent in doing so, offering all donors via the ‘FSHD – Find the Cure’ mobile app the opportunity to track exactly which research programs their money has been allocated and the latest milestones of those programs.
In its truest sense, the FSHD Global Research Foundation is a small organisation doing some very big things!
