About the Castang Foundation.
Following the death of her brother Max, who had been born with cerebral palsy, Miss Hilda Castang was determined to provide funds for research into the causes of cerebral palsy and other neurodevelopment disorders. She left her entire estate to fund research.
The Castang Foundation is led by a small group of Trustees, with different professional backgrounds.

Childhood neurodisability is very common – most people know at least one family where a child has disability due to a neurological condition. The Castang Foundation funds one or two new research projects each year. However, we would like to increase the amount of research we fund. Your donation to The Castang Foundation could part or completely fund research that could change children’s lives.
