Host a Fundraising Event

The critical work that Jett Foundation does in the Duchenne community is completely dependent on outside donors.

In order to continue providing education, resources, advocacy, and many programs for the Duchenne community, we need you and your community’s support.

A third party fundraising event is when a business, organization, community group, school, or individual plans and hosts a program or an event that benefits Jett Foundation. It is planned and executed independently of Jett Foundation and Jett Foundation’s staff.

Below are just some ideas of the many ways that you can raise funds and awareness for Jett Foundation in your local community!

  • Collect Donations: Set out collection canisters next to cash registers to encourage your customers to help you support Jett Foundation.
  • Host a fundraiser: Host a benefit concert, a bake sale, a car wash, or an awareness campaign and donate the funds to Jett Foundation.
  • Designate Jett Foundation as a beneficiary of your event: If your business or organization hosts an annual event that generates funds, consider donating a portion of the proceeds.
  • Participate in a Go! for Duchenne athletic team.
