Help Raise Funds

Find the “FUN” in Fundraising!

Fundraising is more than just raising money for the foundation. It’s about building awareness, extending our reach beyond families living with Fragile X, and having FUN with others who care about our mission. Join us as a volunteer, become a fundraiser, or attend an event … it’s FUN!

And please let us know how we can help. You can reach us by email or at (800) 688-8765.

Supporters often ask for fundraising ideas. They’re looking for methods to get involved on a deeper, more interactive level — to bring people together in a way that spreads positivity, encourages advocacy, and inspires more contributions.

NFXF International Fragile X Conference
The NFXF International Fragile X Conference is the largest of its kind in the world. This biennial event brings professionals, caregivers, self-advocates, and family members together in one place — a truly unique experience for a community all-too-familiar with the question: Fragile what? In addition to providing a space for friendship and solidarity, sessions focus on strategies and techniques for living with Fragile X, as well as an opportunity to discover emerging research and opportunities.

Donate to the National Fragile X Foundation
