• Ask a local business for a donation (large screen TV, landscaping, spa package, restaurant gift certificate, etc.) and host a raffle.
• Ask friends who work for big corporations to "match" any donations made for a particular fundraiser
• Talk to family and friends about any potential corporate requirements regarding charitable donations. Ask that they direct their donation to The Children's Fund for GSD Research.
• Inquire about corporate requirements to specific foundations. For example, many corporations require their employees to make donations to The United Way. However, donors have the ability to designate their contributions to The Children's Fund through the United Way .
• Ask your rich uncle for a much needed, tax deductible donation!
