The National Office of The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association has been located at the above location since March 2010. Previous headquarters address was 27001 Agoura Road, Suite 150, Calabasas Hills, California 91301. We changed to Suite 250 in 2008.
Please note that from 1989 to October 1998, the National Office of The ALS Association was located in Woodland Hills, California. Prior to that date, The Association was located in Sherman Oaks, California.
If you are administering an estate gift that specifies either a Sherman Oaks or Woodland Hills, California, address, please change your records to reflect The Association's current address listed above.
One final note, The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association incorporated in 1985. The Association was formed by the merger of two organizations - the ALS Society of America and the National ALS Foundation. An estate gift that specified either of these two previous organizations is a gift to The ALS Association.
Thank you for helping to facilitate a gift in support of The ALS Association's mission which is to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
