Since our inception in 2012, Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) has raised over $40 million to fund open and collaborative research and improve health care for millions suffering with multi-system chronic, complex diseases (msCCD). Our disease focus includes Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Long COVID, Post-Treatment Lyme Disease, and Fibromyalgia.
We have facilitated and funded the establishment of 7 collaborative centers across the globe, in four countries and three continents. These centers are dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and ultimately curing these related chronic, complex diseases.
Open Medicine Foundation is a US-based global nonprofit, with an affiliate organization in Canada (OMF Canada) and a foreign branch in Australia (OMF Australia Ltd). OMF Canada received Charity Status from the Canada Revenue Agency on June 6, 2019.

Please help us expand our research efforts across the globe.
Every donation brings us closer to a fully funded research effort and the answers we all seek.
*Qualified donees are as follows:
Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMFCA and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
OMFCA sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.
