Vitamin D Council's future is at risk
Public health at large will suffer greatly without the important work John Cannell is doing. He is a brilliant mind and dedicated to the greater good. Please consider donating whatever you can, even if it's just $5 or $10.
The work he's doing is at least as important as the Hollis', Hollicks and Heaney's and others 'in the trenches' at the large research universities that have big NIH funding.

Vitamin D Council's future at risk — please help
Because we are a nonprofit, the support of the public is crucial to the Vitamin D Council's existence...
The number of donations we receive every year from the public is few and, as of this year, has decreased considerably. The truth is, if it were not for our sponsors, the Vitamin D Council would not still be here. The reality of so few donations has had its challenges, none more so than the limitations imposed upon what we are able to set out to accomplish. Now, that reality stands to bring its greatest challenge yet — it could place our very existence at risk.
Incorporated as a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(e) educational corporation in the State of California, the Vitamin D Council is required by the IRS to receive a certain percentage of our funding from many small donations. We are not meeting that requirement and, unless the number of donations received by the Vitamin D Council increases, the IRS could decide to revoke our nonprofit, tax-exempt status. If this were to occur, it is most likely that we would no longer be able to continue our mission.
To all our fans who appreciate the efforts of Dr. Cannell, to those who value the information provided by the Vitamin D Council, and to those who would like to keep us around awhile longer, we ask for your help in the form of a donation.
The vitamin D movement has come far, however, there's still a long way to go. The Vitamin D Council has been a prominent proponent in that movement and would be thankful for the opportunity to continue to bring the truth of the wonders of vitamin D to all of humanity. Our greatest accomplishments have yet to happen, let us see what we can do...
