Our Research


Your Gifts are Vital
The Alzheimer’s Disease Center and Penn Memory Center of the University of Pennsylvania depend on both public and private resources to operate. Our funds come from competitive grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), from foundation-sponsored programs, and from individual gifts and bequests from patients, families and friends, and corporate and other benefactors.

NIH funding supports the basic infrastructure of the Center, but your donations and bequests are equally vital. It is those gifts that allow us to pursue and sustain new and innovative efforts in clinical research and caregiver support. Individual, family, and corporate giving is essential to our ongoing efforts to understand and treat these disabling conditions.

The University of Pennsylvania is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
