FAST’s scientists know exactly what causes Angelman syndrome. They have cured the symptoms of the disorder in mice using multiple strategies. A cure is no longer a matter of if, but when.
FAST’s goal is to finalize the scientific foundational work necessary to test therapies in human clinical trials within two years or less. To accomplish this, we need the support of all our family members and friends to help us raise $2 million. The only thing standing between people with Angelman syndrome and a cure is time and financial support for our scientists.
The Angelman community is working together to bring life-changing treatments to people with Angelman syndrome so they can speak, walk, sleep and live seizure free.

FAST welcomes and provides the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy through support of an endowment fund. A gift to an endowment is invested, and the return on investment supports AS research and initiatives. The endowment may be named for an individual, a family, or for anyone the donor wishes to honor. Your gift of an endowment secures your legacy of curing Angelman syndrome. To arrange your endowment gift, please contact a FAST representative or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the smartest ways to increase your donation to FAST is through a Corporate Matching Gift Program. Many companies, and some individuals, will match your donation dollar for dollar, which doubles your charitable-donation power. Some match even more. Johnson & Johnson, for example, matches 2:1 and Grainger contributes 3:1.
You can find a list of companies with matching gift programs on our Fundraising Tools page. If you don’t see your employer on the list, check with your company’s Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching. If they don’t, ask them to start one.
To add FAST to their list of charities, have your Human Resources office contact FAST via:
