2016 Year-End Match

We Raised $30,000!

Donors Make Year-End Fundraising Goal Possible

In  2015 the RLS Foundation decided to allocate the final days of the year to a fundraising challenge - a dollar-for-dollar donation match. This year we surpassed our challenge, thanks to the generosity of our donors in their year-end giving.

A group of anonymous donors provided us with an incredible gift - a match of $15,000! Thus, all donations to the RLS Foundation from Dec. 28 through Jan. 1 were matched dollar-for-dollar up to that amount.

And how did we do? We received donations from 84 generous individuals , including $15,000 in matching funds, to raise a total of $33,125 in just five days!

The RLS Foundation is working to build greater public awareness and understanding about restless legs syndrome, to serve as a resource for people with RLS, and to fund medical research aimed at finding a cure. All proceeds from this unbelievable match will be put towards accomplishing our goals, and providing the RLS community support as the trusted source of information.

You make our success possible, and we couldn't be more grateful.

Thank you and happy new year!
