Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

You Will Actually Smile When You File

The fifteen funds participating in California's tax check-off program are: Alzheimer's Disease/Related Disorders Fund, California Breast Cancer Research Fund, California Firefighters' Memorial Fund, California Military Family Relief Fund, California Fund for Senior Citizens, California Peace Officers' Memorial Fund, California Sea Otter Fund, California Seniors Special Fund, California State Children's Trust Fund, Rare and Endangered Species Prevention, Emergency Food Assistance Program, California Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Municipal Shelter Spay-Neuter Fund, California Cancer Research Fund, and ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease Research Fund.

I believe that Illinois also has a tax check-off donation option that includes ALS. Anybody else?

  1. ALS did participate in the Illinois tax check- off program, but is no longer part of this effort. The state required each fund to raise a minimum of $100,000 in order to appear on the form again the following year. Unfortunately, after a few years of reaching the threshold, the ALS fund did not surpass the $100,00 mark, and therefore, was removed as a tax donation option.

  2. Thanks for the update. Bummer that it fell off the Illinois list.
