AGSF was founded in 2008, soon after Laura Woodall of Davidson, NC was diagnosed with ALS. Mrs. Woodall quickly realized that one of the most challenging parts of living with disease is the toll it can take on the family, mainly due to the new financial pressures that come with ongoing  health issues. That realization prompted her to take action and ask friends to form A Giving Spirit Foundation.

AGSF Awareness month is planned for the month of May to coincide with ALS Awareness month, Mother’s Day and Mrs. Woodall’s birthday.  Mrs. Woodall is proud of the progress AGSF has made over the last few years.  “AGSF has given to individuals who needed assistance and has given to research.  It is my and my family’s hope that this foundation continues to give back.  My vision is that A Giving Spirit Foundation will persevere for years to come.”
