Fundraising Progress

$136,825 Raised of $125,000 Goal


Dear NFED family and friends,

Keith and I, along with Bruce and Alice, our team of 50+ committee members, and our generous sponsors, would like to say THANK YOU for supporting our Halloween Bash.  We truly appreciate you taking the time to give to an amazing cause, the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED).

Without your kindness and generosity, we would be unable to continue assisting individuals and families affected by ectodermal dysplasias.

We are so proud to say that since the creation of the Halloween Bash, we have raised over $4 million dollars for the NFED.  What an accomplishment!  Thank you to our generous donors who helped us exceed our 2017 goal to raise $125,000 by actually contributing over $136,000.  We are amazed and humbled by each of your who helped us achieve this huge accomplishment for the NFED.

This year, the Halloween Bash will run from October 17th through October 31st. Be sure to check back in September for more details.  We will have an exciting online auction with premiere items, an online journal, as well as the opportunity to give to a great community. The funds raised through the Halloween Bash helps the NFED host medical conferences, fund research, and provide support for affected individuals and families.

With much gratitude,

Ruth and Keith Geismar
