When you join today, you'll help us achieve a better quality of life for people living with scleroderma.

What we do for you: the value of your membership in the Scleroderma Foundation

Here are some of the programs and services your membership helps support:

  • RESEARCH. Thanks to you, we fund more than $1 million in new and innovative research each year.
  • EDUCATION. We maintain a full line of updated literature, written by leading experts, on a variety of medical conditions related to scleroderma.
  • SUPPORT. We manage a nationwide network of chapters and support groups.
  • INFO LINE. We have full-time staff who answer our toll-free Info Line (800) 722-HOPE, provide doctor referrals, and send out information to people who inquire by phone or through our website.
  • ADVOCACY. We build partnerships with similar health organizations and inform leaders on Capitol Hill about the issues that are most important to individuals affected by scleroderma.
  • NATIONAL SCLERODERMA CONFERENCE. Each year, we bring together leading scleroderma experts to present the latest information about the disease. This is your chance to meet one-on-one with doctors and other health professionals, and to connect with other individuals affected by scleroderma. Members receive a discount off the registration fee. Because the 2021 conference is a virtual event and the registration fees are significantly lower than in previous years, the Foundation is changing the 2021 discount from a flat fee to a percentage. Current paid members will receive an email from the Foundation with the 2021 discount code and value to attend the conference.
