The Wiskott-Aldrich Foundation is dedicated to serving children with Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome and their families worldwide by funding research and providing educational, financial and emotional support.

    • Work with leading WAS scientists and organizations to identify and fund promising research to find better cures for WAS, and improve the quality of lives of affected children and families
    • Assist families in coping with WAS by providing information on managing WAS, as well as financial and emotional support
    • Educate families and the medical community about WAS and resources available to them
    • Inspire volunteers and donors to achieve WAF’s mission
    • Maximize donor support by utilizing WAF resources in the most efficient and effective manner possible
