Cure Alzheimer’s Fund

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research with the highest probability of preventing, slowing or reversing Alzheimer’s disease. The vision for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund was set by our founders. Frustrated with the slow pace of research about the disease, they applied their experience in venture capital and corporate startups to build an organization specifically designed to accelerate research, make bold bets, and eradicate the disease. The organization’s unwavering focus on finding a cure is made possible by our Board of Directors, which finances all of our overhead expenses so that 100% of all donations go to research.
