Our founder Alex held her first lemonade stand when she was just 4 years old. Some gave hundreds. Some gave their last few dollars. Each of them played an important role in getting us where we are today.
Since then, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) has grown into one of the largest funders of childhood cancer research in the U.S. – proving that anyone can make a difference, one donation at a time.
