Getting Started

We ask that you request permission before using the IFCR name, logo or tagline.

We are happy to help you get started fundraising in support of the IFCR. Every fundraiser helps give our CDKL5 children and loved ones the best life has to offer – and helps us work towards finding a cure!

There are many fundraising ideas to choose from so it is easy to find one that is right for you. The IFCR can also direct you to the best resources for planning your event and get everything in order so you can use the IFCR name and logo.

Facebook Fundraisers

Facebook makes it easy to do an online fundraiser. Log in to Facebook and visit the IFCR Facebook page. From there, click “Raise Money” to see how easy it is to set up a Facebook fundraiser in support of the IFCR.

Just Giving

Another great option for online fundraising is Just Giving. This amazing fundraising tool can get you set up in minutes. You’ll be able to set a fundraising goal, post messages, describe your mission, and add photos and videos. Once your page is ready to go, you can easily share it with friends using email, Facebook, Twitter and other social media.


Another great option for online merchandise sales is Bonfire. Bonfire is a free online platform where anyone can design, sell, and buy custom products. They handle payment processing, order fulfillment, and customer service so you can focus on connecting with your community while supporting IFCR.

Amazon Smile

Do you like to shop on Amazon? Excellent – because you can use AmazonSmile to donate a percentage of your purchases to the IFCR. So all those things you were going to buy anyway suddenly become a great way to fundraise!

The AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organization you select. All you have to do is select the International Foundation for CDKL5 Research as your charitable organization!
