Become a Monthly Donor

Every day someone receives a new diagnosis of Fragile X in their family. Your monthly support — as little as $10 — gives the NFXF the capacity to help them face that first day of diagnosis and a life very different than what they expected.

Help Raise Funds

You can start fundraising as an individual, by joining a team, or by creating your own team. It’s super easy … and your support promotes advocacy, provides education, advances research, and improves treatment for the entire Fragile X community.

Honor a Loved One

If you would like to set up a Memorial Giving Page to benefit the NFXF, you can customize your family’s message and include your own photos and a donor wall for your friends and family to leave personalized messages. For help, please email Kristin Bogart.

Give Cryptocurrency

Like stocks and other assets, donating cryptocurrency can provide greater tax benefits than gifts of cash. We have two ways you can do this, or if you have questions, please email Kristin Bogart.

Get Your Employer Involved

Matching Gifts
Many organizations have matching gift programs in place to supplement their employees’ charitable contributions, which means you can double or even triple your donation. In fact, you can check to see if your employer has a matching gift program right now:

See if your employer will match your donation
If you find your employer, after you make your donation, we will provide steps to apply for the match as easy as possible for you. If your employer does not appear in the search, we are not aware of a matching program.

Payroll Deductions
Many employers also can set up automatic, tax-deductible donations as payroll deductions directly from your paycheck. It’s an easy, no-fuss way to give. Check with your human resources department about these options, or contact us if you have questions or want to learn more.
