Fundraise Your Way

Fundraise Your Way is a community based program that gives you the opportunity to raise money for the Foundation by creating a unique online fundraiser or by planning your own fundraising event.

Whether you’re collecting donations to celebrate a birthday or planning a golf outing, you can turn your special occasions, hobbies or athletic aspirations into ways to raise money to help people living with ALS.

And if planning your own event is too much work, we have plenty of events you can join!

How Do You Want to Fundraise?

Create an Online Individual or Team Fundraiser: What do you enjoy most? Cooking? Running? Your birthday? Whatever it is, you can raise money for ALS by doing it! We provide a simple online fundraising page for you to share with friends and family and the tools you need to help you reach your goals. Learn More.

Plan an Event: Looking to put your planning skills to the test and see your hard work pay off at an event surrounded by your family, friends and community? This option is for any idea where people would need to purchase a ticket or RSVP to attend. Let your imagination run wild in planning your dream event and our event staff will be here to provide support and make sure your event is successful. Learn More.

Attend an Existing Event: Don’t have the time to plan an event? We already have several events for you to join where we do all the heavy lifting. Simply join in on the fun by raising money for an existing event throughout the year. Learn More.

If you are not sure which option is right for you, or don’t see what you are looking for, our events team is here to help. Reach out to us with any questions by calling 847 679 3311 or by emailing
