About Us

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $127 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 650 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.

Our Mission:

  • To raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily for research into new treatments and cures.
  • To encourage and empower others, especially children, to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.
