The Deutsche Club für Kooikerhondje e.V. (DCK) has made a donation of € 10,000.00 available for research into polymyositis. The story behind it (in German) can be found on this website: Bereitstellung von forschungsmitteln. Because of many years of good cooperation between the various sister associations, there was such a great faith that the DCK chairman, my colleague Mr Roll, asked the VHNK for the most efficient way to donate the money. In consultation with Dr. Mandigers, the DCK, the VHNK and a lawyer devised a construction to avoid having to pay overhead costs.
The money has now been deposited into a third-party funds account and is used from there to pay for research. Management of the account is in the hands of the VHNK. In this way the entire amount can be used for research. Costs of the bank account and the administration are settled by the VHNK. We are kept informed of the expenditure four times a year by means of a report by dr. P. Mandigers.
We are very happy and grateful for the DCK initiative. One thing is certain: € 10,000.00 will help, but it is not nearly enough. Therefore, this writing is a call to donate money for research into polymyositis.
The third-party funds account will remain open for gifts from others for the time being.
