Alzheimer’s disease was discovered over 110 years ago. Little was known about the disease and, since then, little more has been learned, until recently.

Frustrated with the slow pace of research about the disease, our founders 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. They also insisted on four key principles to ensure success:

- Fund the world’s leading Alzheimer’s researchers
- Provide rapid review and approvals for submitted grants
- Insist on collaboration among funded scientists
- The board of directors pays for all overhead expenses so that 100% of donations go directly to research

Since our founding in 2004, our unwavering focus has been providing research grants to the worlds’ leading scientists researching Alzheimer’s disease. To date, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has contributed more than $132,000,000 to Alzheimer’s research. Many of the projects we have funded resulted in significant breakthroughs, developing a deeper understanding of Alzheimer’s disease, and getting closer to a cure.
