Make a Memorial or Tribute Gift

Memorial and Tribute Gifts are a powerful way to honor or remember a loved one, friend, or colleague by supporting FRAXA Research Foundation’s mission to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Fragile X. Your meaningful gift provides critical funds for cutting-edge Fragile X research.

Donate In Honor

If you would like to direct family and friends to make gifts to FRAXA in lieu of flowers, the following is suggested wording for an obituary or other tribute:

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to FRAXA Research Foundation in memory of {name of deceased} to support Fragile X research at:

We will notify you of any gifts received in honor or memory of your loved one.

Naming and Funding Opportunities

Named Funds

You can make a gift to create a current-use fund to address immediate critical needs, or an endowed fund to provide resources in perpetuity. Both types of funds can provide support where it is needed most or be designated to a specific project. Named current-use funds can be established with a gift of $50,000 or more, while a gift of $500,000 or more can name an endowed fund.
