Spotlight on SUDC: Nathan's Story

fadeIn

Nathan's story is lovingly told by his family.

Nathan came into this world of his own choosing. We had set his induction date for February 9, 2013, (so he could share his birthday with a grandfather he would never meet). However, Nathan decided his own birthday and came into the world at 1:03 am, February 10, 2013 (just missing the date we wanted by 1 hour and 3 mins) and weighing 5lb 12oz. After his birth, we were so happy. Our family was complete. My husband and I had our little girl (who was almost 3) and our baby boy--we didn't need anything else.

Fundraiser Host Spotlight- Meet Grandparent Jean Sibley

We are thankful for our many families, friends and supporters who want to raise awareness and funds in memory of a beloved child by hosting a fundraiser to benefit the SUDC Foundation. In this edition of SUDC Insights, we would like to share our recent conversation we had with Jean Sibley, a SUDC grandparent who hosts Reading for Magnolia, an annual event held in memory of her granddaughter, Magnolia. 

How to Secure Event Sponsorship

fadeIn

The SUDC Foundation currently receives no public funding. The work of fulfilling our mission, including no-cost services to families and funding research,  are due to the generosity of private donations- 85% of which comes directly from fundraising events. Because of this, fundraising events are essential to effectiveness of the Foundation.  Growing larger events with increased revenue can be aided by securing event sponsorship's- which can sometimes be tricky to navigate.

We are grateful to all of the dedicated supporters who choose to host an event on behalf of the foundation and hope that the ideas expressed in this article will provide guidance as you navigate the supporter/sponsor relationship.
