Please help support our research!

Please make a donation to the Nightingale Research Foundation. We are a nationally registered charitable organization and can provide a tax receipt for gifts $20.00 and over. Donations can be easily and securely made on-line, by mail or by fax (contact information is listed below for your convenience).

We invite discussion of larger donations for specific research or publication initiatives - simply contact us to discuss the possibilities with Dr. Hyde or one of the directors on our Board.

The Nightingale Research Foundation is primarily dependent on its publications sales and donations in order to continue its work. We do seek from time to time corporate and philanthropic funding for our special projects such as a conference or updating our publications. All funds are used for research and communications; we have no full-time paid staff but many dedicated volunteers.

Our research has given us the ability to better understand the causes of M.E. and CFS, and to locate and minimize the myriad of physiological impairments caused by the disease process. Much more research work needs to be undertaken to discover the cures required to cope with these pernicious diseases.

We cannot achieve this without the support from the M.E. and CFS community - who, unfortunately, are usually the ones hardest hit financially. To those of you who would like to join in our quest through the purchase of our publications (please check our special book offer) and/or through a donation, you may choose one of these methods:
