Event Giving


The Strollathon program, IRSF’s Signature fundraising event, has been bringing families together to fundraise and to strengthen the local Rett community since 2004. These events are planned and executed by dedicated volunteers and committees in each community with support from IRSF staff. These events raised $8 million in the first ten years.

Corporate Sponsorship

Thank you for your support of the International Rett Syndrome Foundation and your interest in Corporate Sponsorship opportunities.  Corporate Sponsorship is the unique partnership between your company and the Foundation providing specific visibility and attendance benefits in exchange for a pre-defined level of financial support. This financial commitment contributes to the Event’s bottom line and does not apply to an individual’s fundraising total.
