Corporate donors are crucial to our mission. Not only do your generous gifts help us make a difference in the lives of people with ALS, but they help us increase awareness of our organization, our mission, and ALS itself.
Planning a campaign that benefits both you and the nonprofit is extremely important, so we’ve developed a platform that will help you understand what types of assistance will be the most helpful for us. Challenge ALS has three pillars: Participate, Advocate and Donate
Participate is about pitching in and lending a hand. Whether you host your own event or fundraiser or attend one of ours (like the Walk to Defeat ALS®), we appreciate the awareness and support that each event brings.
Advocate refers to helping us bring about public policy changes that will improve the lives of ALS patients. For example, there’s still so much to learn from ALS research, so government funding is extremely important to our mission.
There are an estimated 1,400 ALS patients in Texas, and right now we’re connected to about 800. That’s not bad, but we can do better. Every donated dollar helps us care for ALS patients across Texas and provide services throughout our great state.
As an organization, we are committed to transparency and efficiency, and we use every dollar donated to maximize our impact on our community. The ALS Association of Texas is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt organization under code 501(c)(3) and is registered with the state of Texas as a non-profit organization.
