Introducing RAISE

We’re proud to introduce RAISE– a new way to fundraise at the ALS Therapy Development Institute. RAISE is a digital platform that allows you to build your own custom fundraiser to honor a loved one, host events and sell tickets. RAISE was developed in-house, which means we can now offer better support to our fundraisers and adapt pages to fit their needs. But most importantly, by eliminating outside software providers, RAISE allows us to put even more money directly into the lab! You can check out RAISE, see current fundraising pages, or create your own here.

Combined Federal Campaign is Back

Last year was the first time the ALS Therapy Development Institute participated in the national Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Thanks to all of the federal employees who donated, ALS TDI received over $30,000. Learn more about the CFC here and share our CFC number (#98547) with friends and family!
