We understand that financial, philanthropic and estate goals are unique to the individual. For this reason we welcome the opportunity to assist as you incorporate your clients' philanthropic objectives into well-crafted estate plans. Furthermore, we encourage prospective donors to consult with their financial advisors before making decisions based on information we provide.

Thank you for helping to facilitate a gift in support of The ALS Association's mission which is to lead the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy while also empowering people with Lou Gehrig's Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
