What % of donations go to programs?
100%! The Mateffy Family will be covering all administrative and overhead expenses of the WMRF.
Can I control how my donation is used?
General donations are preferred but if you have a specific requirement, we are happy to try to accomodate.
Will I receive updates on the professorship and directly funded research?
Yes, the WMRF will send an annual letter to supporters.
I'm confused about where the money is going and all the matches/leverage.
Totally understandable! The first $250,000 in outside donations will result in $1,000,000 after the Mateffy family and Morgridge match. That will fund the professorship. The first activity of the professorship is to establish newborn screening for PBD in Wisconsin.
The next $250,000 donated will still be matched by the Mateffy family for 2x leverage! The exact research proposals to be funded are TBD. The WMRF will work with the Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders to identify the most impactful proposals.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes! The Wynne Mateffy Research Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax deductible.
