Bequests and Endowments

The funds generated by bequests and endowments increase the annual financial value available to award to Canadian researchers furthering the study of dermatology.


When estate planning, consider making a bequest or endowment to the CDF. Support the future of dermatology, and leave a lasting legacy.
