Join the fight and help us Breakthrough ALS! Funds raised through the Breakthrough ALS campaign will benefit the ALS Therapy Alliance (ATA), a leading organization dedicated to advancing ALS research.

Every dollar counts. Together with its partners, the ATA has raised over $30 million to fund leading-edge ALS research projects - one dollar at a time.

Donate today and become part of the ALS Therapy Alliance (ATA) family, working together to find a cure for ALS. 100% of your donation will benefit the ATA.

There are two (2) options available to choose from for your generous donation: ALS Research or our Peer-to-Peer Network. Please learn more about these options below and choose the donation method(s) you prefer.

Donations to Research:

100% of your donation will be used to benefit the ALS Therapy Alliance, Inc., which includes funding grants for ground-breaking research, expenses associated with clinical trials, and on average 6-8% to support overhead associated with fundraising activities for the organization.

It is donations such as yours that allow us to fund the research efforts and make great strides towards finding a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Donations to the Peer-to-Peer Network:

We recently started a new partnership with the Miller Family to research and build an online Peer-to-Peer Network to support children whose parents are suffering from ALS. This support group will offer resources for children ages 13 - 16 to learn more about the disease, connect and share with peers throughout the world, find fundraising events that they can participate in, and much, much more. Watch our Blog and Facebook page for more information coming on this new project in 2013.
