Wedding and Special Occasion Gifts
Fundraising for PDF's goals of research, education and advocacy comes in many different forms. You can support our work while celebrating a special occasion - whether it's a wedding, anniversary or birthday.
Some people choose to honor their guests with gifts to PDF, rather than giving favors, while others ask their guests to donate to PDF in lieu of giving gifts. When you make a gift in lieu of gifts or favors, PDF will provide favor cards to acknowledge your generous donation. PDF suggests a minimum gift of $2 per guest.
For more information, or to request favor cards, please contact:
