Who We Are
The Endometriosis Foundation of America, also known as EndoFound, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness for endometriosis, a debilitating reproductive disease that affects one in ten women of childbearing age in the United States, and an estimated 200 million women worldwide.
EndoFound is committed to funding landmark endometriosis research. We support research that investigates topics that range from the social impact of endometriosis to the scientific, down to the cellular and molecular make-up of the disease. This research, in turn, helps the medical community understand the sub-types of endometriosis; something that will assist in developing better treatment strategies.
Research projects that utilize innovative methods, have objectives that aim to advance the scientific community’s understanding, and researchers who have a strong record of producing impactful studies that influence both clinical care and overall health outcomes are all strong frontrunners for EndoFound-funded research grants.
To help further our efforts, please consider donating to endometriosis research today. We thank you for your support.
The Endometriosis Foundation of America strives to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, facilitate expert surgical training, and fund landmark endometriosis research. We are committed to inform both the medical community and the public with the latest developments surrounding the disease. At the heart of our mission? EndoFound believes early diagnosis and effective intervention is critical, as well as providing education to the next generation of medical professionals and their patients.
