Fundraising for the NY/NJ Region helps us continue to provide programs and services for our local HD community. Each year the region utilizes fundraising dollars to provide HDSA Support Groups, HDSA Social Workers, HDSA Centers of Excellence, and HDSA funded medical research. Every year we hope to expand upon the services we provide to the HD community in the NY/NJ Region, but we can’t do it without your help!

Events with the Help of a Local Company or Restaurant
Most restaurants and companies have a certain amount of money set aside every month that is designated for charities. Partner with a local business by approaching business owners in your community about working together to raise money. A good way to pitch a partnership is that you get a percentage--generally about 10 percent--of sales during a certain time period. It may be a whole day, it may be for a few hours. The business owner can use it as a tax write-off, and you can bring in money toward your goal.
Restaurant chains typically have some type of chartiable program in place. Many restaurants will offer deals to costumers if they donate towards a charity. Restaurants and companies also have discounts such as half off meals and gift cards that you can ask them to donate to use for a silent auction or raffle item at one of your events.
