Support and stand by those living with ALS in BC



100% of all donations to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Society of British Columbia  will remain in BC to support patient service programs and research through PROJECT HOPE.

We hope you and your family are well.  Knowing that many Canadians are feeling the personal and economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis, we put a great deal of thought into whether we should reach out to you at this time.  However, the harsh reality is that ALS does not stop and neither can we.

The need for your support is more vital and urgent than ever, especially in the light of the fact we may have to cancel, postpone or reinvent our fundraising events in an effort to keep people safe.

We hope you will help if you are able.

ALS Robs people of so much, especially time.

Help people living with ALS today.

Your generous donation will help people and their families living with ALS to access our patient services including support groups, mobile clinics, psychological support services and equipment loan program.  Your support will keep alive the hope of finding a cure for ALS and provide quality care for those living with ALS.

A gift of stocks can maximize the value of your philanthropy while also giving you tax advantages. Your generosity means that people living with ALS today can benefit from services, support, and advocacy – and makes possible the effective treatments of tomorrow through research investment.
