How to Donate

As many as a half million women in the US have HG annually. According to our international survey, about 25% of the women visiting our site have terminated an average of 1.8 pregnancies due to ineffective care and lack of support, and 1 in 3 pregnancies never make it to term. Some have terminated as many as 13 much-wanted pregnancies. Your tax deductible donation will help these women - and potentially protect the health of future generations.

Donate NowCongress wants to know how many people "care about this cause," and the best measurement is the number of individual contributors - even if you can only donate a few dollars.

If every woman who has suffered from HG gave just $1, we would raise enough money to fund the needed research for HG like our groundbreaking genetic studies that have already identified a gene associated with both HG and Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. Please donate now.

Honor someone with a tribute.

Celebrate someone special in your life by making a generous donation to the HER Foundation in their name. Whether it's a holiday, a birthday, a wedding, the birth of a child, or any other special occasion, a tribute gift is a simple and thoughtful way to show your respect for a family member, friend or coworker. In addition to a grateful acknowledgement of your donation that serves as your receipt for tax purposes, a recognition letter will be sent to your honoree. You will know that your gift gave twice--to the one you remembered and to the lives of families facing HG.

Make a memorial donation in remembrance of a loved one.

Honoring the memory of a loved one, especially one lost to HG, is a unique and gratifying way to help others. Send a memorial gift to the HER Foundation in their name and continue their legacy of love and hope. In addition to a grateful acknowledgement of your donation that serves as your receipt for tax purposes, a recognition letter will be sent to your designee if requested.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many companies match employees' contributions to charity. Please check with your Human Resources Department to find out if your company has such a program. If your company does match employee contributions, please include the appropriate Matching Gift Form with your donation (your donation will help twice as much).
