Awareness Activities– Hold an educational event about LAM and The LAM Foundation in your home, school, church or other social outlet. The more people who know of the disease, the more effective the work will be. By holding an awareness event, YOU will be pivotal in helping The LAM Foundation to grow into a larger network of people who can help move the mission forward.  You can also send letters or emails to your connections to let them know about LAM and the need for financial support.

Development or Fundraising –Fundraising helps secure the funds necessary to support research and educational activities. Examples include organizing special events (auctions, dinners, galas, walks, fitness or golf), organizing quick fundraisers (LAM-on-aid stands, garage sales, teas), joining The Foundation’s online fundraising efforts, soliciting major gifts, and recruiting other volunteers.

To learn more on planning fundraising events, please contact the Development Office at (513) 777-6889 or development@thelamfoundation.org for additional resources.

Communications or Public Relations -- To help ensure success, The LAM Foundation’s activities, events and programs are promoted through these efforts. We can use your help in producing and distributing news releases, creating posters and flyers, and developing positive relationships with the media in your community.

Advocacy – Make calls, write letters and send e-mails to your legislators when there are critical issues that affect healthcare, research and rare diseases. Your voice makes a difference.

LAMposium - Participate in the planning of the Breath of Hope Gala and online auction. Participation is done via conference call so you can help from wherever you live.

Office assistance – Do you live in Greater Cincinnati? Are you looking for a friendly place to share your talents? Frequently, The LAM Foundation has a need for extra hands to help facilitate some of the projects and activities in the office.
