Get Involved


Donations to the BSA may be made online or through the mail. No donation is too small. Because Bloom syndrome is so rare and little-known to the general public, raising sufficient funds for scientific research and family-support programs—as with all rare disorders—is extremely challenging.

General Fund

The General Fund is an all-purpose fund to support the mission and basic operations of the BSA. Donations to the General Fund may be used to support any of several BSA projects, programs, and events. At the discretion of the Board of Directors, the General Fund may also be used to support current Bloom syndrome research or accelerate the growth of the endowment.

The BSA is a volunteer-run organization. Staff members, officers, and members of the Board of Directors receive no financial compensation for their services. The majority of operating funds are used to host and manage the organization’s website via licensed software and services.  For all other operations, overhead is minimal.
