Join the DMRF Canada Legacy Society

Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada established the Legacy Society to acknowledge those who have made a lasting commitment to supporting dystonia research by naming DMRF Canada their estate plans.

By including the DMRF Canada in your Will, you help to ensure that dystonia research will be supported until we achieve our mission to find a cure. Your legacy can be a future free from dystonia.

Just one sentence is required to include DMRF Canada in your will. 

Bequests are the simplest of planned gifts.

A bequest is simply a statement in a Will that stipulates a gift to an individual or organization. All donations– including bequest gifts - will enable DMRF Canada to continue to move forward in its mission to find a cure and to serve those affected by this debilitating disorder.

When making your gift, please note that the legal name of the DMRF Canada is "the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation Canada."

If you would like to join the Legacy Society and receive more information on planned giving options, please contact National Director, Archana Castelino at
