The John W. Walsh Founders Circle
The John W. Walsh Founders Circle is named after and pays tribute to the legacy of the co-founder of the Alpha-1 Foundation, John W. Walsh, who dedicated his life’s work to finding a cure for Alpha-1.
Members of the Circle have named the Alpha-1 Foundation as a primary beneficiary to receive $50,000 or more in benefits from their estate.
