PECSIG is a non-profit society in the UK who are supported by the good will (and a little money) of our members. This allows us to do our work of educating the next generation of Paediatric Experts, improving the understanding of all Paediatricians and contributing in our part to the care of children with heart disease.
Everything you see on this site; the words, pictures, information and even the technical code behind is built by generous people giving their time. This allows us to continue training the Paediatricians of the future who might care for our children, our grand-children. If you think you could offer any of the following then we would love to hear from you.
We raise our money from our members and because we are not a charity we cannot fundraise like charities do. If however you would like to donate then please contact us. Every penny is spent on improving the life of children with heart disease; through educating the next generation of doctors to delivering better information, better support for families. Please contact us here, we'll even tell you how your donation was spent - most charities can't do that, we are small enough and personal enough we can.
Why are we not a charity ?
In truth we are just too small. The costs of administering and running the charity would be a significant financial burden that would be difficult to overcome. As a non-profit organisation we may not have all the benefits of charitable status but we avoid many of the costs which may prevent us achieving our aims.
