State Fundraising Notices

Although our financial report is always sent free to anyone requesting a copy, certain states require us to advise you that a copy of our financial report is available from them.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (“MDA”) is leading the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. We use our collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for individuals from day one and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America. A copy of MDA’s latest financial report may be obtained by writing to MDA’s National Office at 161 N. Clark, Suite 3550, Chicago, IL 60601.
