$1,000 Goal

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders or FASD is an invisible disorder impacting 1 in 20 U.S. children. It is more prevalent than autism, down syndrome, or spina bifida. However, awareness and resources continue to be notably less available. FASD is a developmental disorder with life-long implications. Early identification and correct diagnosis offer more successful outcomes when paired with appropriate strategies and accommodations. 

Texas FASD Network was formed to expand FASD support, awareness, and advocacy across the state of Texas. Our efforts include meeting with legislators to pass the FASD Respect Act, educating healthcare professionals and educators about FASD, and hosting caregiver-led support groups. We have trained over 2,000 people in the past three years. Texas FASD Network is the state affiliate for FASD United, the national organization for FASD.

Fundraising with North Texas Giving Day allows Texas FASD Network to continue serving local and regional communities in Texas, supporting families and individuals with FASD, and educating others. Your donations make a difference!

Giving Activity


Texas FASD Network provides support and resources for parents and caregivers with a loved one affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), and provides trainings for educators, mental health, medical and justice system professionals.


Our organization needs funds for education seminars. As a non-profit with a mission of educating professions on fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, seminars are often the most effect way of achieving that goal. Seminars require upfront costs to put on, as well as handouts to print. Speakers on specific topics charge for their presentations. We're looking for support for the costs of putting on quality in-person seminars on FASD. Costs could vary between $500 - $2500.
