There are so many things you can do to get involved and make a difference within our community in ways that fit your talents, interests, comfort levels, and availability. By offering your time, money, and support, you will help the ULF to continue to provide our many vital research and patient support programs.

  • Annual Benefit Drawing – Annual fall fundraiser held during September – October. Purchase tickets online or by mail. Prizes are awarded on the first-drawn, first choice basis.
  • Amazon Smile – Support while you shop through AmazonSmile. Set the United Leukodystrophy Foundation as the benefactor of your AmazonSmile purchases.
  • Monetary Gifts – There are two simple ways to give a gift to support the ULF. You can make an online donation, call toll free: (800) SAV-LIVE or (800) 728-5483 to make a gift over the phone using your credit card, or send a check to United Leukodystrophy Foundation, 224 N. Second Street, Suite 2, DeKalb, IL 60115.
  • Annual Magical Memories Disney Raffle – Annual spring fundraiser held during February – March. Tickets are available for purchase by mail or online. The drawing is held in late March or early April. 
  • Grassroots Fundraising – Host or organize your own fundraiser! The ULF has many ideas and tools to help you along the way.
  • Honor & Memorial Tribute Gifts – Commemorate a birthday, anniversary, special occasion, or celebrate a holiday with a gift that helps the ULF. We also receive donations in memory of ULF friends whom we have lost. These gifts are a thoughtful way to remember a loved one, while supporting an organization that directly impacts them. 
  • Non-cash Gifts – You may also give non-cash gifts in the form of stocks, securities, real estate or other gifts in kind. Because non-cash gifts require additional paperwork, review and approvals, we encourage donors to contact their financial advisors and the ULF office when considering a non-cash contribution.
  • Planned Gifts – A planned gift through a bequest, insurance contribution, retirement asset, annuity, donor-advised fund or irrevocable/revocable trust is an option that could give you and your family financial and tax benefits, while helping impacting ULF’s programming for years to come. 
  • Workplace Giving – Payroll deduction giving is one of the most convenient ways to support the ULF. You can give a small amount with each paycheck that adds up to make a big difference. Donations are deducted automatically. It’s easy, efficient and affordable! Contact your HR department to begin your contribution. 
  • Matching Gifts – Double your donation! Many companies offer to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift. Check with your employer if they match donations or volunteer hours. If so, ask for the Matching Gift form and return it with your donation. Your personal gift and matched contribution will be credited to the program or event that you designated.
