This year I am proud to support Open Medicine Foundation (OMF)’s annual May Momentum Campaign. (Brieﬂy describe who you are, your connection to OMF, and why you support our mission!)
In recognition of May ME/CFS Awareness month, this campaign is a special effort by OMF to increase awareness of ME/CFS and related multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD) and raise funds to accelerate urgently needed research.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a devastating and complex disease that can present as an array of life-altering symptoms that may change over time and differ from patient to patient. Millions more are now at risk with #LongCOVID.
There are also no diagnostic tests or treatments available for ME/CFS. OMF seeks to change this
by supporting medical education and research to ﬁnd effective treatments.

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.
