Make a Gift

The UW Medicine Memory and Brain Wellness Center is dedicated to promoting the wellbeing of people living with memory loss — and those of their families — through exceptional care and innovative research. We owe much of what we achieve to the support of a generous community — to the support of people like you.

Donations help support patient- and family-centered care, breakthroughs in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease research, and the training of tomorrow’s physicians. And by giving — perhaps in gratitude for care, or in memory of a loved one — you can help improve the lives of your friends, your family, and your region.

If you would like to be our partner in enhancing health and changing lives, we recommend one of the funds listed below. Or, if you would like to learn more about giving to the UW Medicine Memory and Brain Wellness Center, please contact the UW Medicine Advancement Office at 206-543-5686
