Community Of Hope


ALS United Greater New York provides the simple tools you need to help you plan, promote, and manage your activity. Start with an idea (a hike, garage sale, poker tournament, golf outing, comedy night, anniversary party, or basketball game, for example), and create and customize your page where you can share your story, photos, event information, and then recruit others to join you or donate in support of your efforts.

Here are some ideas for the types of fundraisers you might create:

    Dedicate a special day or milestone to bringing help and hope to the ALS community.
    Golf, swim, hike, cycle, paddle, and more! Go the distance to defeat ALS!
    Turn passion into progress with an activity such as an art sale, chili cook-off, car show, or whatever you can dream up!

Our staff can help you get started right now! We are here for you and eager to provide guidance, ideas, expertise, and resources before your event. To start your own fundraising activity today, please contact Shelby Cicero, Coordinator, Fundraising and Special Events or 212.720.3043.


Establish a lasting legacy by creating a customized fundraising webpage in honor or in memory of a loved one. These pages provide a place to share photos and stories among family, friends, and the community and serve as a special way to invite others to support the fight against ALS.

Questions about setting up your tribute or memorial page? Please contact Vivian Banks, Director of Individual and Institutional Giving at or 212.720.3051.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser

Create A New "Facebook Fundraiser" Today! You and your social media network will help improve the quality of life and hopefully extend the lifespans of those with ALS. Celebrate a holiday season, your birthday, or an anniversary by creating a Facebook Fundraiser to support The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter. Together, we can assure that no one living with ALS must face this disease alone.

Facebook makes it really easy to establish a dedicated page to share your story, honor a loved one, tell others about our unique mission, and rally around a fundraising goal.
