In addition to the annual dinner and auction, NISSA puts on a handful of special events every year to help raise awareness and funds for bereavement support, risk reduction, and research. Past events have included Concert for a Cause, Motorcycle Poker Run, and golf tournaments. Volunteers might be needed to help run these special events. Individuals can also put on their own special events (party, car wash, raffle, dinner, etc.), collect ink cartridges or used cell phones for charity, or conduct other fundraisers and donate the proceeds to NISSA.
