Are you interested in organizing an event to raise awareness and funding to help us advance our mission? We can help find the right event for you and assist you with the details.
Families have told us that holding a fundraiser in their community empowered them to share their story, educate their friends, family and community, and take action to help everyone affected by ectodermal dysplasias.
Awareness and fundraising projects come in all shapes and sizes. Individuals, families and companies can host them. The key is to pick an event that interests you. Here are just a few events held in the past:
- Art show
- Bake sale
- Car show
- Golf tournament

Contact Lea (618-566-6871) at the NFED. She can support you in your planning, assist in creating a webpage for your event and help market the event.
Facebook fundraisers are another easy way to raise money for the NFED. It only takes three simple steps and your fundraiser is ready in just minutes! Facebook waives all credit card fees, too, meaning the entire donation goes to the Foundation. You might want to set up a fundraiser for you or your child’s birthday, for Ectodermal Dysplasias Awareness Month, or any time you want! Be sure to start at the NFED Facebook page to plan your fundraiser. Once you have it set up, share with your friends.
Thank you for helping us fundraise to further advance our mission!
