At the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, family is everything. While the organization’s research, care, advocacy, and awareness programs strengthen and empower HD families in their fight against the disease, the support of these families is in turn essential to offering these crucial services. Family Funds provide a unique opportunity for generous families to personally host HDSA fundraising events and activities in their local communities, raising awareness and ensuring that HDSA has the financial resources necessary to combat HD.
A Family Fund is a unique way for family members to combine their resources in order to create a significant named donation in support of programs and services for the HD community. By conducting events (dinners, golf outings, Hoop-a-Thons), letter-writing campaigns, or other activities, participants mobilize their friends and communities for donations. Once these donations are collected, the total gift is credited to a Fund bearing the family name or the name of a departed loved one, celebrating their life or marking your family’s dedication to the HD community.
Your Family Fund can strengthen all of HDSA’s programs and services through unrestricted support, or you can restrict it to specifically support research, care, or advocacy.
