Now that you’ve made the decision to Organize an Event, you may be wondering where to start. Not to worry! The NFXF is here to help whether you are a seasoned event planner or have no experience at all. Event ideas are limitless, and with the help of friends and family, anything from a gala dinner to a walk to a neighborhood lemonade stand can become an effective fundraiser for the NFXF.
Organizing a walk is a great way to raise money and awareness for Fragile X. It provides the opportunity for friends, family, and co-workers to spend time together doing a healthy activity while contributing to the National Fragile X Foundation. The NFXF has worked with numerous individuals and LINKS groups over the years to help organize successful walks in their local communities. For more planning information and tips, please visit our Walk for Fragile X Toolkit.

We have partnered with Crowdrise to help you create a personal or team online fundraising page featuring your event. After you set up your page, there is a simple way to share it your family, friends and colleagues to invite them to support your efforts. Your page can be personalized with photos, information about the NFXF including Fragile X disorders and of course, your story! Anything that inspires donors to support you!
