RMRA has achieved a lot since its interception and nearly all of the work is done on a volunteer basis. We rely on donations to provide the supportive services and resources to girls and their families, from engaging in advocacy, education and awareness efforts, and raising funds to support the search for a cure and improved treatment options. We have worked together to raise the money to form and continue to support the Rett Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado.

How YOU can help

Make a direct donation!

Donate conveniently through Colorado Gives, at ColoradoGives.org – 100% of your funds will help those impacted by Rett Syndrome. Read about reasons to give right here.

Become a committee member or board member

We have several committees that are looking for additional members – the Development Committee and Family Support & Engagement Committee. For more information on committee responsibilities contact Jessica Lindsley at Jessica.lindsley@rmrett.org.

Become a corporate sponsor and/or use employee match programs

Own a company? We would love to talk to you about becoming a corporate sponsor! Alternatively, don’t forget to ask if your employer matches charitable gifts – it’s an easy way to double, and in some cases triple, your donation. Besides, RMRA is a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations are tax deductible.

Participate in an RMRA event

Volunteer for RMRA’s annual events or participate in one of our upcoming events. You can either help in person at the event itself or raise awareness by spreading the word on social media and inviting all your friends and family! See all upcoming events here.

Create awareness of Rett Syndrome and RMRA

Set up your own fundraising event

It’s easy, fun and we’ll help you! Don’t like to ask for money? No problem! When sending your invite, tell your friends to donate to your favorite charity, the RMRA! Need a few event ideas? Read on!

  • Have a charity party at your house:
    Maybe a spaghetti dinner, a pancake breakfast, a barbeque in your backyard or a wine tasting? The options are endless!
  • Get a group together in a community setting: Organize a picnic, a happy hour at a bar or meet at a community center. No clean up necessary!
  • Organize a sale: Do you like baking? Then maybe a bake sale is a great idea! Or your kids would love a have a lemonade stand?
  • Set up a community event with a purpose: How about a Walk, a Ride, Run? Maybe organize a dance? Or maybe a golf tournament? Think about your hobby and how you can make this beneficial for the RMRA.
  • Go big and fancy: Go even bigger and organize a gala. It’s a great opportunity to ask all your friends to come!
  • Ask for a donation instead of a gift: Have a birthday coming up and your house is already full of “stuff”? Or maybe your company is looking for a cause? Ask for donations to the RMRA!
  • Host an online event: No time to host an event? Start an online event through ColoradoGives.org, Facebook
  • Help run an ARC collection drive: ARC has created fundraising opportunities where organizations can collect items for ARC and then ARC will give a monetary donation to RMRA.

Engage the community with a fundraiser at a restaurant

Groupraise makes it easy to organize a fundraiser at a local restaurant. Go to this website, chose a date and select one of your favorite local restaurants. Wait for confirmation and then invite your family & friends and announce it on social media for additional exposure.

Shop with benefits

    • Use Amazon Smiles when shopping on Amazon. Shop on Amazon Smile instead of Amazon (same items, same costs to you). If you select RMRA as your charity of choice on Amazon Smiles, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to RMRA!
  • Get a King Soopers card. King Soopers is donating percentage of your shopping amount spent as long as you use a specific card. Read how it works in our blog “3 Easy Ways to help the RMRA!
