Become a Brain Donor

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. The more we study it, the closer we get to curing brain diseases like Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, migraine, stroke, epilepsy, and more. Brain donations make this crucial research possible.

Donate Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency gifts are considered non-taxable events—like donating stocks—so you don’t have to pay capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct the donation on your taxes. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations are a tax-efficient way to support the American Brain Foundation’s vision of life without brain disease.
