One way NCFASD Informed works to spread awareness and advocate for support for our families is by attending conferences througout our state. The fees for having a table at these events vary from $500-$1,500. Attending these conferences is important to:
- spreading awareness of FASD among key leaders within the state legislature and senate;
- gaining support from other disability rights organizations;
building relationships with like-minded individuals who can help move our mission forward; and,
- growing our community by meeting family members and friends of those with an FASD.
Please donate to NCFASD Informed.Your donation will be used to fund our participation in these conferences. As a small non-profit, we rely on the donations of individuals like YOU.
Any amount, no matter how small, is needed. Your donation can be a one-time gift or a monthly re-occuring contribution to our cause.
