Ways to Donate

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s mission of research, patient services and education about ALS. There are several ways to make a donation, all of which are easy, quick and secure. The following are just a few of the needs your donation supports:

  • $25 can purchase 10 blood sampling kits for ALS research.
  • $100 covers four hours of respite care for an ALS family.
  • $500 will provide one eight-hour RN visit for patients on a ventilator.
  • $1,000 funds the construction of a customized wheelchair ramp, a home modification not often covered by insurance.
  • $2,500 covers safe, reliable, handicapped-accessible transportation to and from the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic at the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine for one year.

For questions about ways to give, please contact Steve Schapiro, Director of Development, at or call 847 745 6021.
