Help Find A Cure For ALS!

WELCOME TO THE ANGEL FUND FOR ALS RESEARCH

The Angel Fund for ALS Research (Angel Fund, Inc.) is an independent non-profit charity (04-3478977) dedicated to supporting ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research at UMass Medical School in Worcester, MA, internationally recognized for its ground-breaking work in the fight against this devastating illness.

The Angel Fund is special.

We are not a national charity – we are local. We have very low overhead and administrative costs.

Why are they so passionate?

Because most have lived through the heartbreak of seeing their loved one live with ALS and lose their battle to this horrific disease.

Our mission is to support ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) research and scientific investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory by raising funds through events, campaigns, foundation grants and numerous other community outreach activities, to aid in finding a cause, treatment and cure for ALS.

Our Non-Profit Setup

Our offices are located in the law firm of Nigro Pettipet and Lucas, courtesy of Directors Jan and Eugene Nigro. Angel Fund President Rich Kennedy and the board members are not paid. As a result, it means we have very low overhead and administrative costs so more money goes to research. We are proud to say that 92% of funds expended goes to research.

  • No rent
  • No utility bills
  • No high paid executives
