Mission 1 Million
FARA grassroots fundraising had an amazing year in 2016, raising over $1.5 Million for FA research.
As we celebrate all that we have accomplished in 2016, we will also use this momentum to ignite our efforts in 2017. We propose a goal to again raise $1 Million for grassroots fundraising in 2016; by working TOGETHER we can continue to reach this record setting accomplishment!
How to Get Involved
Fundraising for FA Research can be an empowering and very rewarding experience. When you participate in a fundraising activity, you help FARA grow its community and forge a stronger fundraising effort to battle FA. Please consider participating in or supporting FARA events such as Ride Ataxia or the FARA Energy Ball, joining Team FARA, or attending a family hosted fundraising event in your area.

If you’re interested in hosting your own fundraiser, FARA has an experienced grassroots fundraising team to mentor you and help you through the process of running your own fundraiser.
Past Events include:
- Letter writing campaign
- Walks / 5K Races
- Backyard Party
- Dinner and Dance Galas
- Restaurant Nights (% to charity)
Consider holding your event in conjunction with Friedreich’s Ataxia Awareness Day, the 3rd Saturday every May or on International Ataxia Awareness Day on September 25th.
FARA asks that anyone wishing to organize a fundraiser complete this Fundraising Form prior to their event. This form allows us to assist you in the planning process and also helps us comply with IRS regulations for non-profit organizations. This form should be sent to Ann Musheno at ann.musheno@CureFA.org. Once we receive your form we can schedule a phone call to discuss the event planning process.
