Important Update on PAL Awards 2015

Cara Hesse | February 11, 2015

Calling all patient groups! Genzyme will be making changes to the 2015 PAL Awards program. On the 5th anniversary of the program, 2015 provides us with a unique opportunity to reflect upon and assess the impact of PAL on advocacy work around the world.  We will be seeking input from previous PAL applicants, recipients and others on ways in which the program might be enhanced to better serve the needs of the LSD community.

Since 2011, more than $400,000 has been awarded to 37 patient organizations around the world to support disease awareness, community mobilization, non-profit development and good governance activities. In addition, 33 additional organizations have received one-on-one support from outside experts, as part of the PAL program, to further develop their fundraising and grant writing skills. We are looking forward to your feedback to help guide the program into the future and ultimately improve upon it. If you have ideas or feedback, please get in touch with us at

Stay tuned for more information over the coming months.
