Plan a third party fundraiser to support the Myasthenia Gravis Association of Western Pennsylvania (MGA)

Third Party Fundraising Events:

  • The money raised at your third party fundraising event goes to benefit the MGA General Donation Fund unless requested in writing otherwise.
  • Some potential ideas for Third Party Fundraising Events…
    • Start a Facebook Fundraiser to recognize a birthday, anniversary or other special day
    • Establish an EBay Store to sell your crafts or other items
    • Host a party (painting, jewelry, Pampered Chef) to benefit MGA
    • Partner with a local restaurant or bar to have a “MGA Night” where a portion of each check is donated to MGA
    • Plan a “major” event – golf outing, sports tournament, 5K walk/run, a “Thon” event, or a concert/show
    • Create a virtual event – on-line auction, trivia night, cooking demonstration – show us your skills!
