Welcome to the Fungal Infection Trust fundraising page

The FIT is trying to raise £130,000 to fund a programme of research to understand the genetics of fungal illnesses. We have evidence that indicates genetics is involved, but we need to take this research into the next stage – if we understand what role genetics plays in getting this disease – we hope to achieve better outcomes and improve the quality of life for thousands of people.
On this website, you will find the details for past and upcoming fundraising campaigns – including details of how to contribute. If you would like to get involved in fundraising for FIT, please see our contact page for how to do this.

Our fundraisers

The Fungal Infection Trust benefits from the support of personal donations from patients, carers and dedicated friends of people who have suffered from serious fungal illness. We would like to thank those supporters and friends.
