Our Programs

Adopt a Scientist Program™

The AD Foundation wants you to see exactly how your donations are being used. Through our “Adopt a Scientist™” program, you can support individual Alzheimer’s researchers and follow their progress over time. For donations exceeding a certain size, donors will be granted the opportunity to meet directly with the scientist(s) they are supporting and learn first-hand how their donation was used. Furthermore, donors will be recognized by name in the acknowledgments section of scientific publications supported by donations. Please click here to learn more about this program.

Alzheimer’s Prevention Program

Donations made to the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program are used to support the collection, analysis and dissemination of the latest scientific research on Alzheimer’s disease prevention. After vetting by our Scientific Advisory Board, the AD Foundation translates the most relevant findings into specific and easy-to-understand recommendations. We publish these findings on our website and via a regular newsletter distributed to all donors. This program is supported by donations of any size.

MemoriALZ™ Program

At its heart, the AD Foundation is all about preserving memories, and our MemoriALZ™ program is the purest reflection of that ambition.  For a modest minimum donation, you can generate custom memorials on our website to honor a loved one afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease.  Upload pictures, text, and other content, and create a webpage dedicated to your loved one, a place where you can keep their memories alive. This feature is currently under construction, but please check back soon.

Art of Alzheimer’s Fundraiser

Thank you to all who supported our first annual “Art of Alzheimer’s” silent auction. The event was a tremendous success! Held at the Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) gallery in downtown Laguna Beach on November 20th, the fundraiser featured more than 50 original works of art, including watercolors made by Alzheimer’s patients. More than one third of the art was sold, making this our most successful fundraiser to date. We plan to hold this event every year, so please stay tuned for this year’s announcement. Thank you once again to all who participated!
