Since 2012, #GivingTuesday has been celebrated annually as a global day of giving back on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.
Fueled by the power of connection and collaboration, it is a global movement to inspire people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Since its inception, participation has grown to more than 145 countries and, in 2021, an estimated $2.7 billion was raised in the U.S. alone!

Giving back brings people together and empowers them to make a positive change in the lives of others. It is an opportunity for connection, kindness, and is essential to our well-being. This year, thanks to the generosity of Golden West Chapter Supporter, Tom Waldrop and his children, in loving memory of  wife and mother Linda Clegg Waldrop, all donations to the Golden West Chapter on Giving Tuesday will be matched, up to $6,000.


As a supporter of the Golden West Chapter of The ALS Association, please take a look at some other ways you can meaningfully participate to give help and hope to families facing ALS.

Thank you for your support on Tuesday, November 29!
It is only together that we will defeat ALS.


WAY TO GIVE #1

Help fuel vital programs and services by making your gift to the Golden West Chapter in support of the ALS community. Everything that we do supports the search for effective treatments and cures for ALS.

This year, all donations made on Giving Tuesday will be matched up to $6,000! Your gift to the Golden West Chapter is tax-deductible, whether it is made online or through a donor advised fund, so please be generous this #GivingTuesday!
