Earlier this week,  the ALS Association announced the largest single gift in our organization’s history — $58 million! This gift from the late philanthropist Hugh Hoffman will significantly advance promising ALS research and access to ALS patient care.

Mr. Hoffman was a Cincinnati native who passed away in March 2023 at the age of 91. When he was 11, he lost his father, Herbert, to ALS. The impact was so great on him that, at the end of his life, he wanted to ensure other families do not lose their loved ones to ALS.

This contribution is specifically designated to advance promising ALS therapies, develop new ALS clinics and strengthen existing ones, and enhance access to ALS care for people living with ALS.
