The NBIA Disorders Association is a small, collaborative organization, and our impact multiplies with each new team member who shares his or her story and hosts a fundraiser.
Our staff is dedicated to providing support and resources to individuals and loved ones affected by NBIA. We hope you will find this toolkit useful.
Fundraising is crucial to the work we do. We are entirely funded by our families, friends, and sponsors, including private and corporate foundations. Our small team ensures that every donation, no matter the size, goes-the longest way possible. Otherwise, we could not fulfill our mission--to provide support to families, educate the public and accelerate research with collaborators from around the world.
You can support us by holding a fundraising event and donating the proceeds to the NBIA Disorders Association. There are many fun and creative ways for you or your organization to raise money. Possibilities include:
- Organize a run or walk
- Host a casual dinner party for friends, neighbors and colleagues
- Hold a golf tournament
- Organize a bake sale or dessert party
- Host an awareness event at a local fair/school/church/synagogue
- Host a tournament at your local school, roller-skating rink or bowling alley
- Organize a dinner/dance with a silent auction
- Any idea, big or small, helps and has an impact on the work that the NBIA Disorders Association does every day
