Does my small contribution really make a difference?
Research projects cost a lot of money. A pilot project can cost $25,000 or more and a large research project can cost $200,000 or more; however, each contribution we receive adds up to support the vital research needed to find treatments and a cure for Niemann-Pick Disease.  And research is making progress.  To learn more about research funded by the NNPDF, visit our CLICK HERE.  Every contribution, large or small, makes a difference and drives research forward to win the fight against NPD.  The NNPDF and families affected by NPD deeply appreciate any contribution you are able to make, and we work hard to be good stewards of your gifts.

I don’t have a lot of money to contribute to NNPDF.  What else can I do?
