Proudly Serving 31 Counties throughout California and the state of Hawaii


Efficiency and Transparency

The ALS Association Golden West Chapter is proud to be a part of a very select group of high-performing charities who have earned a Four-Star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. Only 25% of evaluated charities receive this distinction, which is awarded to recognize sound fiscal management and a commitment to accountability and transparency.

According to Charity Navigator, the most efficient charities spend less than 10% of their budget on fundraising, less than 15% on administration and at least 75% of their budget on the services they provide.  The Golden West Chapter exceeds this criteria while providing a wide range of essential services to the ALS community with an unparalleled degree of efficiency.
