Big Day of Giving - May 4, 2017 

Big Day of Giving is a local initiative to increase philanthropy in the greater Sacramento region. All day on Thursday, May 4th, donors can give to their favorite charities. Donations to The ALS Association Greater Sacramento Chapter can be made HERE on May 4. You can also make a donation now for processing on May 4 and help us reach our Big Day of Giving goal of $15,000.

Your gift will directly fund programs providing patients and families with in-home care, financial support, patient and caregiver support groups, medical equipment, and will help fund our groundbreaking service dog program Paws4pALS. Every dollar will make living life to the fullest with ALS more than just our mission statement.
