Fundraising Toolkit

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.

Fragile X Walk

Fragile X Walk

Walk for Fragile X

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.
