Fundraising Progress

$91,329 Raised of $100,000 Goal


Dear NFED Family and Friends,

We couldn’t have done it without you!

Keith and I, along with Bruce and Alice, our team of 50+ committee members, and our generous sponsors, want to THANK YOU for supporting our 20th Annual Halloween Bash. Without your kindness and generosity, we would be unable to continue assisting individuals and families all across the country – and around the world – who are affected by ectodermal dysplasias.

The National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED) is an amazing organization – and one that means so much to our family. We are fortunate to have you on our team! Even in this difficult year, you have been generous in your support. Thanks to you, we are so, so close to achieving our goal.

Be sure to read our Halloween Bash Journal above to learn more about the advances the NFED has made for the ectodermal dysplasias community, to recognize our sponsors and supporters, and to enjoy 20 years of fun Halloween Bash photos!

We are proud to say that since the creation of the Halloween Bash, you have helped us raised more than 4.2 million dollars for the NFED. What an accomplishment! We are humbled by each of you who helped us achieve this huge accomplishment for the NFED, for our family, and for every affected family out there.

We look forward to the next Halloween Bash, and we hope you will join us again!

With much gratitude,

Ruth and Keith Geismar
