Supporting families on GivingTuesday

November 21, 2020

During the holiday season, we are reminded how grateful we are for the things that we have. While we check off our gift-giving lists this Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are so many ways to give back to those who need support in our Duchenne and neuromuscular community. Please consider giving hope to Jett Foundation and making a difference in our Duchenne community on GivingTuesday, Tuesday, December 1st. Here are a few simple ways you can make a BIG impact on our programs and in our community, directly impacting the lives of families across the nation.

  1. Give The Gift Of A Donation
    Jett Foundation’s Annual Appeal is underway and any gift this GivingTuesday, no matter how small, makes a huge difference when it comes to financially sustaining our programs and services for families impacted by Duchenne muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular disorders.

Every year we are reaching more families thanks to donors like you, and NEW this year, we are launching an Emergency Fund as part of our Jett Giving Fund program. The fund is designed to help families impacted by the pandemic and future hardships. It will help with the basics–groceries, rent or mortgage payments, utilities, and more. Your gift today will help us launch this program in 2021 and help us support as many families as we can.

  1. Get Your Employer Involved
    Consider asking your HR department if your company will match a gift you make to Jett Foundation–this is such an easy way to double your impact! Another great way is to get your employer involved as a Corporate Partner, or raise awareness about Duchenne with your coworkers. Together we can continue to grow our Jett Foundation community.
  2. Join A Go! For Duchenne Athletic Team
    Move your muscles for those who cannot! We may not have been able to bring our teams together this year, but our Go! for Duchenne teams still made a huge different safely from home. Whether you join our triathlon team, cycling team, running groups, golf tournament, or start something on your own, you’ll be making an impact while you move. Get your friends involved and have fun training and raising money for Jett Foundation. Visit for more information on how to get involved.
  3. Start A Facebook Fundraiser
    Consider organizing a Facebook fundraiser with Jett Foundation as your beneficiary. Click here to easily create a fundraiser on our behalf. Be sure to tag Jett Foundation and let your network know how you are giving hope this #GivingTuesday.
  4. Shop On Amazon Smile
    Consider doing your holiday shopping through Amazon Smile with Jett Foundation selected as your nonprofit of choice. While you shop for your friends and family, Amazon will donate back to Jett Foundation.
  5. Share Your Jett Foundation Story
    One of our favorite ways that our supporters and families are delivering hope is through sharing their Jett Foundation stories. Each inspiring story of strength and courage is a gift to us; from the families we serve to the supporters who make it all possible, we hope you’ll send us a note sharing exactly why you believe in the work we do at Jett Foundation. Submit your testimonial to [email protected] or send us a Facebook message.
  6. Sign Up For Jett Foundation Newsletters
    Stay in the loop all year long with our programs, fundraising, and awareness initiatives!
