The Foundation’s Mission Statement
The William G. Lauer Foundation gives back to the ALS community by resolving unmet needs of ALS patients so they can live at home, raising funds to support The ALS Association, and funding research to find the cause and a cure for ALS. The Foundation also advocates on behalf of ALS patients by increasing community education and awareness about this debilitating, fatal disease.
The Foundation’s Goals
Donations to the Foundation support ALS research and those living with ALS. Contributions are directed to:
• Direct support services such as home modification, communication technology and other needs to help patients continue living at home.
• The ALS Association-Keith Worthington Chapter of Omaha, providing the only ALS-specific clinic in Nebraska and support services for patients, including evaluation of equipment needs, an equipment loan closet, information about patient rights, assistance with government benefits and education about the disease.
The Foundation also raises awareness and educates the community about ALS.
