Every Gift Matters: Philanthropy’s Many Possibilities

Almost six million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, which likely means that all of us know someone whose lives have been touched - directly or indirectly - by dementia.

The UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging (SBCoA) has been a world leader in some of science's most important discoveries about Alzheimer's disease, and we intend to have our fingerprints on the cure as well. Philanthropy is essential to continue our groundbreaking work that will make today’s dreams tomorrow’s reality.  

We have set a goal of $15 million to advance our clinical operations/facilities, expand resources for outreach and education, and recruit and retain the most talented faculty and staff in the field.
