Do you know how many nonprofits there are in the United States? I didn’t until I Googled it. It blew my mind.
According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S.
This number includes public charities, private foundations, and other types of nonprofit organizations, including chambers of commerce, fraternal organizations and civic leagues.
Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) is one of the 1.5 million charities. I’ve chosen to be involved with this charity because Huntington’s disease (HD) has impacted my life in a huge way. My mother-in-law and three (3) sisters-in-law, Lora, Marcia and Cindy has all died from HD complications. To learn more about HDSA, visit: http://hdsa.org
I’m involved with the NEW HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate and we need volunteers in order to meet our mission. “HDSA is dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease and their families.”
The SF Bay Area Affiliate Team works to improve the lives of HD families by organizing fundraising events which funds local services; i.e. University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University Centers of Excellence (HD clinics), support groups, and education days.
We need volunteers!
