What It's All About

ALTSO provides free prosthetic limbs and corrective surgery to children suffering from traumatic or congenital limb disabilities in the developing world - at an average cost of only $250 per child. And we stand beside our kids all the way until they turn 18.

The average ALTSO family earns about $3 a day, and lives approximately 1 to 3 miles away from the closest school. With no access to transportation, if a child can’t walk, they simply can't go to school. If they can’t go to school, they can’t get a job. If they can’t get a job, they can’t sustain a family.  This is the reality for children with untreated limb disabilities in the developing world.

Now in its 13th year, ALTSO's signature benefit - Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest - unites 1,400 professionals from the alternative investments and related financial services industries for a night of rock & roll and acoustic music in support of ALTSO’s mission.



From Asia to Africa and Latin America, ALTSO has treated more than 15,000 children to date - click to meet our kids, and help us treat 2,000 more in 2017.


ALTSO’s Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest is recognized as one of the most unique, effective - and fun - benefits in the philanthropic and financial services industries. Check out photos from past events and see for yourself.




From globally recognized corporations to leading hedge funds, 
ALTSO is sponsored by companies committed to leveling the playing field for children with limb disabilities.



Includes 5-hour open bar, food, and great rock & roll from leaders in the financial community. One ticket provides a life-changing treatment for a child in need.
