Fundraise Online

When diagnosed with pheo para, it is common to feel alone and powerless against the illness.  People want to help, but don’t know how.  Holding an online fundraiser is empowering for you, your loved ones and those who don’t know how to help.  It can also be a great way to tell people about your or your loved ones pheo para journey.

Fundraise on social media, by text or email!
Join us this year at the Mark Twain House & Museum on September 21 in Hartford, CT.
All proceeds benefit the Pheo Para Alliance mission to invest in research to accelerate treatments and cures while empowering patients, their families and medical professionals through advocacy, education and a global community of support.

Join us for an intimate event, complete with reception and dinner, to raise funds for the mission of Pheo Para Alliance.  The Mark Twain House & Museum, serves as a unique venue, and celebrates the works of famed American author, Mark Twain, who changed the way the world sees America and the way Americans see themselves.  The evening will honor Dr. Arthur Tischler, Surgical Pathologist from Tufts, who has dedicated over 40 years to pheo para research.

Planned Giving

When you remember Pheo Para Alliance in your estate plans, you are providing us the power to continue our work for years to come.  Planned giving involves integrating your charitable gift into your overall financial, tax and estate planning objectives to maximize benefits for you and for Pheo Para Alliance.

Leaving funds to Pheo Para Alliance is a meaningful way to provide us with financial security while you save on estate taxes. A bequest, fully deductible for estate tax purposes, might place your estate in a lower tax bracket. You may bequest cash, property or appreciated securities.

An unrestricted gift enables us to use the funds to support whatever programs are deemed most urgent at the time. Or you can specify how your gift will be used. If you plan to make a restricted gift, kindly contact us to make sure we can fulfill your request.

Suggested Wording for a Specific Bequest
“Leave [dollar amount] to the Pheo Para Alliance, or its successor, to be used for general purposes of the organization.”

Suggested Wording for a Residual Bequest
“All the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, real and personal, give, devise and bequeath to the Pheo Para Alliance, a non-profit corporation, to be used for general purposes of the organization.”

Read this document for other ways to leave a planned gift to PPA.  Important Note: In all cases, it is advisable for you to consult your own financial planner, tax or legal advisor when you consider making a planned gift.

To learn more about planned giving please contact Stephanie Alband, Executive Director at or 442-615-9221.
