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 Personal (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 Personal 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!
NF Midwest has truly been a beacon through our journey with NF. They sponsor wonderful symposiums with the top NF researchers that share their latest findings. In fact, we found Silas's neurologist through one of their symposiums. They have even hosted educational conferences to help general practitioners better understand NF.
