Did you know you can help fight ALS every day?
You can – and the workplace giving program makes it easy!
Workplace giving lets you set up payroll deductions that directly support The ALS Association and our efforts to fight ALS. It’s a simple, convenient way to support powerful change and advance the search for a cure for the thousands of Americans living with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).
One way to participate in workplace giving to The ALS Association is through Community Health Charities (CHC) programs. CHC connects American workplaces to credible charities focused on addressing our nation’s most pressing health issues and has represented the most well-respected health charities in our country for more than 50 years.
As a proud member of CHC, The ALS Association has met stringent criteria to make sure we deliver more of every dollar donated into the hands of those who desperately need it.
Workplace giving options available through our partnership with CHC include:
- The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): Federal and state employees and members of the military may participate in workplace giving through the CFC. Simply designate The ALS Association by writing #11997 on the Workplace Giving Form.
- The Private Sector Campaign: If you work for one of the companies listed here, you are part of the CHC's Private Sector Campaign and can make a gift through payroll deduction.
When you participate in workplace giving, you perform a powerful selfless act with every paycheck.
Your donation supports patient service programs and over 150 research projects funded by The ALS Association.
Another way to fight ALS through workplace giving is with the Matching Gifts Program. Is your company part of it?
If so, you can double your gift to The ALS Association simply by completing a matching gifts form.
If your company isn’t listed, it may still have a matching gifts program. Check with your human resources department for more information.
What if my company doesn’t participate?
You can be an agent of change! If your company doesn’t participate in a workplace giving program, encourage your company’s executives to get involved.
When companies participate in workplace giving through CHC, employees can select the health causes most important to them and know that their charitable dollars are spent wisely.
You can also donate to The ALS Association here.
Life expectancy for people diagnosed with ALS averages just 2-5 years. And there’s currently no cure.
The ALS Association supports people living with ALS through our chapter care services programs, global research, advocacy and public awareness campaigns.
