Thank You
for your Help in 2013!



If you; volunteered, made a donation to us, participated in an event or learned more about ITP from our website, you helped kids with ITP, so Thank You!

The work we are able to do, with your help, to support medical research and raise awareness is challenging and it could not be done without you.

Your support helps KIDS with ITP live better and safer lives.


In 2013 your support allowed us to grant $15,000 to the PARC ITP study conducted by: The Intercontinental Cooperative ITP Study Group (ICIS).

Over the last nine years, your help has allowed us to make research grants totaling $200,000 - all which  benefited KIDS with ITP.


In 2014 we would like to fund new research efforts, but we need your help and continued support; so let's wish for great 2014!

The ITP Foundation is a non-profit organization established to raise awareness of Immune Thrombocytopenica (ITP). The mission of the ITP Foundation is to increase awareness and improve the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with Immune Thrombocytopenia. The ITP Foundation helps to raise funds to further ITP research.

ITP is a blood disorder in which the immune system attacks the body's platelets, the function responsible for clotting. ITP stands for Immune Thrombocytopenic (a decrease in blood platelets) Purpura (purplish areas of the skin and mucous membranes). You may also hear it referred to as Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, which means the cause of the low platelet count is unknown. ITP occurs in children and adults.

The focus of the ITP Foundation is on ITP in children and adolescents. The ITP Foundation takes an active role in raising awareness through outreach efforts on both local and national levels. This is done through sporting, social, and educational events.

The ITP Foundation gives grants and funds research that directly benefits children and adolescents with ITP.  The ITP Foundation is a tax exempt organization pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
