Welcome to The ALS Association's
Community of Hope

The power is in your hands to make a significant impact in the fight against Lou Gehrig's Disease. The ALS Association's Community of Hope gives you the opportunity to inspire others by creating an online Fund.

Share your ALS story with everyone you know and encourage them to make a contribution to your Fund. The money you raise goes to support our crucial patient services program, leading-edge ALS research and our advocacy effort on Capitol Hill.

There are many reasons to create a Community of Hope Fund – in honor of someone special, in memory of a loved one, for a special occasion or simply just to support the fight against this unforgiving disease. Whatever your reason is, the ultimate goal of creating a world without ALS is the same for every Fund in this Community of Hope.
