Fundraising projects come in all shapes and sizes. They are conducted by individuals, family groups, and companies who are passionate about supporting The Marfan Foundation’s mission.
From bake sales and lemonade stands to garage sales and fundraisers at your school or office, we’re here to offer encouragement and help you get started.
Host an Event or Raise Funds!
Supporting and fundraising on behalf of The Marfan Foundation has never been easier! We’ve created our Community Fundraising program to help you easily raise money through your connections. With the help of our peer-to-peer fundraising platform, Classy, you can create your fundraising page at any time.
You are making a difference in the lives of those with Marfan, Loeys-Dietz, VEDS, and other genetic aortic conditions. We appreciate your support and your wonderful efforts to support our community.
Don’t forget to have fun and email us photos!
Celebrating a Special Occasion like a Birthday or Anniversary?
Create your fundraising page to share with your network of friends, families, and coworkers. You will be able to add a photo, tell people why you’re fundraising, and easily send it out via email or social media.
