Organize a Fundraiser to Support the Adult

Congenital Heart Association

Fundraisers planned by volunteers are a vital source of funds that help ACHA continue our mission and programs in education, outreach, advocacy, and the promotion of research.

Volunteer Fundraisers can be as simple as a birthday wish or Twitter campaign to a more elaborate event like a cocktail reception, gala or silent auction. For more information, check out our How to Host an ACHA Fundraiser packet. This packet includes a more details along with some fundraising ideas and information about our more simple Fundraiser in a Box kits!

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your ideas further, please contact Development Assistant Ashley Sheehan at asheehan@achaheart.org or (215) 849-1260.
