What your leadership means in a global pandemic

Welcome! As a member of our Leadership Circle giving community, we are pleased to share an exclusive Impact Report showcasing how your donations are making a huge difference for the six million Canadians living with arthritis. Strengthened by your ongoing leadership, the Arthritis Society will stop at nothing, even in a global health crisis, to come closer to living in a world where people are free from the devastating effects of arthritis.
