The Shred ALS Foundation was founded in 2018 with one simple mission; to help families impacted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS. 100% of the funds we raise go directly to those whose lives have been devastated by this disease. We are an approved 501(c)3 organization and qualified donations may be tax deductible.
Shred ALS Mission Statement:
1) To Provide Support - to families affected by ALS in a variety of ways, such as medical & pharmaceutical expenses, home health assistance, travel costs, home & auto modifications.
2) To Promote Awareness - the life expectancy of a person diagnosed with ALS is approximately 2-5 years. This means at any given time there are relatively few people living with ALS and the disease does not always get the attention and funding it deserves.
3) To Promote Advocacy - we are a voice for those with ALS to our local & national lawmakers. The Right to Try, stem cell research and raising general awareness are all worthy causes that need a voice like ours, and yours!
