Mission Statement

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases . We do so by funding worldwide research; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising and local engagement. It’s special work powered by special people who give generously.

Description

At MDA -- the Muscular Dystrophy Association -- our mission is to save and improve lives of people fighting muscle disease. We fund research to find treatments and cures, support and empower families and rally communities by aligning with supporters who care. Most people know we host a telethon and help kids with muscular dystrophy. Actually we do much more. We find treatments and cures, support families, and rally communities. Designated a "Top-Rated Charity" by the American Institute of Philanthropy, MDA is the first nonprofit to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Medical Association "for significant and lasting contributions to the health and welfare of humanity."
