Do something 4NF! Do something you know…Something you love! Don’t worry…we’re here to help!
Raise awareness and funds by creating your own #DoIt4NF (DIY) event. This is a great way to give more than your individual donation and to raise funds to support Clinics, Awareness, Research, Education and Support. Include your friends to help improve the lives of children and adults with neurofibromatosis in meaningful ways. While it is a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) event, we’re here to help however we can.
Whether you have organized an event before or this is your first time, we want your fundraiser to be a great success and we’re here to help you. Combined with NF Midwest’s expertise in planning, tax receipting, policies and recognition, you can easily hold your own fundraising event that is meaningful for everyone. We know organizing and planning a fundraising event can be a huge task, which is why our team of experienced event staff are happy to support you and provide the tools you need.
A #DoIt4NF fundraiser is when a business, organization, community group, school or individual hosts an event or program to benefit NF Midwest. It is planned and executed independently of NF Midwest.
NF Midwest is funded almost entirely by donations. In order to improve the lives of adults and children who have neurofibromatosis in our region we need your help. It is as simple as that…we need YOUR help. You CAN make a difference.
We have lots of ideas on ways that you can help raise funds and awareness for your NF Midwest. You can find some on our website or simply contact us. Here are just a few ideas…
Hold some sort of party with a fun theme or event – think Trivia Nite, Game Nite, Wine Tasting; host a benefit concert; hold a tournament (golf, basketball, mini-golf); have a bake sale or car wash. If you’re planning an event for friends where everyone has to chip in – for instance a dinner, a picnic or a golf outing – tell everyone that the “overflow” will be donated to NF Midwest.
The key is to do something that you feel would be fun and rewarding and that works for you….#DoIt4NF!
Whatever you do designate the NF Midwest as the beneficiary for your event.
Contact NF Midwest or check out our guidelines and submit the Fundraiser Proposal Form. Once the agreement is signed and returned to the us, you are ready to start promoting your event and we’re ready to help you!
4 years ago, my daughter was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis at the age of 4 months. I had never heard of it. I was given a brochure for NF Midwest from her doctor and I signed up for their symposium. Shortly thereafter, I received a call from the Director, Diana. She let me know that her husband and two children have NF as well. She asked if I had any questions, and let me know that they were there for us. I had just received shocking, frightening news about my infant child. I didn't know where to turn, and suddenly I had a place to go for answers and help. NF Midwest has been there for my family every step of the way. We are so grateful for the work they do, and proud to support it.
