Walk with us to raise money and awareness of ACHD
One great way to help raise funds and awareness of ACHD is to join one of our Congenital Heart Walks. You can volunteer, put together a team or just participate in a Walk near your home.
Hold or host a fundraiser—and have fun
The Walks are very important but our volunteers plan all kinds of fundraisers for ACHA. Every one contributes to supporting 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 more details along with some fundraising ideas and information about our simple Fundraiser in a Box kits! Do you already have a fundraiser in mind? Please complete our Fundraiser Application.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss your ideas further, please contact Development Manager Jessica DiGiovanni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please submit your application at least 6 weeks in advance of your fundraiser. Once we receive your application, we will evaluate your fundraiser proposal for its appropriateness and benefit to ACHA.
- We ask that you allow 2-3 business days for your application to be reviewed by our development staff. Once a decision is reached, we will contact you directly.
