Girafund is a family project. The goal is to raise research funds for Pediatric Thyroid Illness, including Pediatric Thyroid Cancer.
- To raise funds for Pediatric Thyroid Illness Research and make it financially sustainable.
First and foremost, the Girafund Foundation was incorporated on February 4th 2011, to help finance the ongoing research at CHU Sainte-Justine and, more specifically, the impressive work of Doctors Van Vliet and Deladoëy.
All investments are managed privately and independently and we reserve the right to finance any pertinent research in other institutions.
In collaboration with the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation, we’ve also established a Capital Endowment Fund called Girafund to maximize the long-term sustainability of financial support for research endeavors at CHU Sainte-Justine.
This Fund is designed to generate enough annual revenue to finance the commitments of the research endeavors. Girafund is available to anyone or any corporation unwilling or unable to make donations directly to our private Girafund Foundation.
