The National ME/FM Action Network has been informing Canadians about ME and/or FM since 1993. Among our accomplishments, we spearheaded the development of diagnostic and treatment protocols for ME and FM, published statistics on ME and FM, wrote a guide on applying for disability and another on educational issues, published a quarterly newsletter, translated key documents into French, brought an international research conference to Canada, supported the development of the Complex Chronic Diseases Program in BC and supported the development of the ICanCME Research Network.

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.
