Young FamilyYour donation helps the IDF provide resources and services to the thousands who live with primary immunodeficiency diseases. Your generosity can positively affect patients, family members, and those who care for and about them.

IDF is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, and your contributions are tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by IRS regulations. Please consult your tax advisor to determine the tax deductibility of your contribution.

There are many ways of giving to IDF. Some of the most popular options are listed here:

Make a Gift Online or by Check

The easiest way to support IDF is to make an online gift via credit card. Not only does it save you a stamp and an envelope, but you receive an electronic tax receipt within seconds of making your gift! If you would prefer to mail your gift, please make your check payable to “Immune Deficiency Foundation,” and mail it to the following address:

Immune Deficiency Foundation
110 West Road, Suite 300
Towson, MD 21204

Once your gift is received by IDF, a tax receipt will be mailed to you.

Double the Impact with Matching Gifts

After you make your gift, check if your employer will match it. Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double or even triple the gift that you make in support of IDF. Some even provide matching funds to reward your volunteer hours. Click here to see if your company has a matching gift program.
