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.
Do you have a different fundraiser in mind? Have you used other events to raise money in the past? If so, we would love to hear about them! Please be sure to contact email@example.com and review our Fundraising Guidelines so that we can discuss your ideas and the ways we can provide support.

To help make your event even more fun and easy, the NFXF provides use of FirstGiving. This website allows you to create a personal or team web-based fundraising page centered on whatever event you’d like. Family and friends can visit your web page and contribute based on the event, including how far you run or cycle, how many candles are on yours or a loved one’s birthday cake, an anniversary, etc. You can personalize your page with photos, information about the NFXF, or anything else that helps donors support your cause.
