Fundraising can be a fun and rewarding way to support APFED’s mission and make a difference for those living with eosinophil-associated disorders.
The possibilities are endless – from something simple as asking co-workers to donate their coffee money once a week to hosting an event, such as a walk, golf tournament, or other fun and engaging community gathering.
Whether you raise $10.00 or $100,000, every dollar makes a difference. And your event not only raises funds to support APFED’s mission and advance research of eosinophil-associated disorders, but also helps create awareness in your community about eosinophil associated disorders. APFED will work with you to make your event a success and will assist you in all areas of coordinating and hosting a fundraiser to benefit APFED. To get started, contact Julie Forrest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some ways you can help support our work:
