The SHANK2 Foundation Giving Page

The SHANK2 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) pubic non-profit organization and your contribution is tax-deductible to the extend allowed by the law.   EIN: 86-3723736

No member of the foundation is paid and our fixed expenses are minimal, so donations are used solely to fund our projects and initiatives.

Many companies have matching programs that can as much as double your donation to the Foundation. Check with your employer to see if they will match your donation. You can also search on-line databases of matching programs (e.g., here). Be aware that both GoFundMe and PayPal keep a small percentage of each donation (~2%) for their services.
