Why Fundraise?

Dravet Syndrome Foundation is dependent on the support we receive from our families, friends and supporters. Without fundraising, our programs and research support would not exist.

Have you been thinking about organizing an event to raise awareness and funding for DSF, but not sure where to start? We have designed our FUNdraisers to make the process easy and fun!

 

FUNdraisers

Our fundraising kits include all the instructions, tools, and procedures you need to host a fun and successful fundraiser at your home, work or school.

 

Run for DSF Team RACRE

If you are participating in a local walk or run, why not do it for DSF? Whether you run as part of an official DSF Team RACRE or as a DSF runner in any race of your choice, we make it easy and fun for you to raise funds. DSF supplies you with a team shirt and personal fundraising web page. Encourage friends to join you and multiple your efforts!

Dimes for Dravet: Coins for A Cure Kit

A great fundraiser to raise awareness while teaching children the importance of giving back. With your school’s permission, children bring in change each day and classrooms or grades have a friendly competition with one another. Along with raising funds, it opens the door to speak about Dravet syndrome and epilepsy in the classroom. Your kit includes electronic templates, handbook, awareness bracelets for all of the children participating, and the winning class receives a special prize.
