Create a Tribute Fund

Creating a tribute fund, in honor or in memory of a loved one, is also a meaningful way to celebrate a loved one, especially if you or your honoree would like to invite others to support ALS United Mid-Atlantic. As a tribute fund “Champion,” you will have the ability to share:

  • why you’re honoring someone
  • photos and videos that highlight your honoree

Creating a tribute page also provides you with the option to establish a unique and customizable donation link to share with family and friends to ensure they are giving to your designated organization, ALS United Mid-Atlantic. All gifts are tax-deductible, and all donors will receive a donation receipt.

Your fund can be promoted on special dates throughout the year and will serve as a lasting testament to your honoree. As the fund Champion, you will be notified of all donations to the fund. Donors may also choose to send a notification to the honoree or other designated recipient via mail or email.

For assistance, please contact Director of Development, Donna Cleary at or 215-664-4133.

Named Funds

Families may create a permanent Named Fund with ALS United Mid-Atlantic. The Fund may be established with a commitment of $25,000 or more, allowing families to honor or memorialize a loved one with ALS in perpetuity in a way that is most meaningful to them.

Memorial Fund Features:

  • Families determine the name of their Fund and may direct its use to support: the overall mission of our organization, ALS research, or patient and family services.
  • Gift commitments to establish Memorial Funds can be paid over a one-to-five-year period.
  • Funds may be established with gifts of cash or securities.
  • Gifts from family members and friends can be applied to the Fund’s establishment.
  • Named Funds may be established as part of one’s estate plan.

Memorial Fund Recognition:

  • `Once established, Named Memorial Funds become part of our organization's permanent record and will be listed each year in the Annual Report with a description of the Fund’s purpose.
  • Funds will be listed permanently on our website with a description of its purpose and a link for those who would like to make a gift.
  • Each Named Fund will be included in a special recognition display in our office.
  • Principal donors will receive a plaque identical to the one displayed permanently in our office to commemorate the Fund’s establishment.

Ways We Can Help:

  • If desired, we can supply families with personalized materials to announce their Fund’s establishment and solicit pledge commitments from relatives and friends.
  • Our automated monthly giving program provides a convenient way for supporters to pay multiple-year commitments by credit card or bank draft.
