Why we need your support
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are working to improve the lives of people affected by this devastating diagnosis. The UW's cutting-edge science is finding new strategies to slow, delay, and prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms, while specialized education and outreach programs support families and dementia caregivers, improve early diagnosis, and work to reduce health disparities in underserved communities.
How gifts make a difference
The UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s supports a wide range of research projects, community education, caregiver support programs, and training for dementia care professionals and young scientists. Your donation stays at UW–Madison and funds programs and treatments for your friends, neighbors and family. Just a few of those programs include a statewide memory clinic network, a choir for people with dementia, brain health education events, free exercise classes, and summer research fellowships for high school students. Together, we can change lives and build a future without Alzheimer’s disease, in Wisconsin and beyond.
