The HCWNY Foundation was established in 2014 as a result of the Hemophilia Center of WNY Board of Directors desire to provide assistance to families in the Western New York community and work more vigorously toward its mission.


The HCWNY Foundation works to provide support through financial and educational assistance in collaboration amongst individual families and organizations throughout the bleeding and clotting community.


The mission of the HCWNY Scholarship Program is to provide a better quality of life for individuals affected by Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease, Gaucher, and other genetic bleeding disorders by awarding financial assistance for advanced education and training, leading to employment and access to health insurance.


The HCWNY Foundation makes grants to the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) Annual Meeting for patients to attend. This is a great opportunity for them to meet other families and learn more about Hemophilia.
