Ways to Give, Make a Difference

We’re grateful for your interest and support!

There are many ways YOU can make a difference and help defeat brain disease!


Support Our Mission: Donate Online

Did you know? 1 in 6 is affected by brain disease. Your donation will help us fund vital research, and together, we can outsmart brain disease. You can make a one-time gift, or create a recurring gift to provide monthly support.


Tributes and Memorials

Recognize someone special with a tribute or a memorial gift. Gifts to the Foundation are a special way to recognize a break through in research, special occasion or special person. It can be a job promotion, graduation, a birthday or anniversary, or to honor the memory of a loved one.

After receiving your gift, you will get an acknowledgement card for tax purposes. If you provide us with the information, the honoree or family also receives a card in your name from the Foundation with no amount mentioned. In addition, in 2018, all tribute gifts will be recognized in our newsletter.


Support Our Mission: Mail a Contribution

You can mail a check or make an electronic transfer directly to the American Brain Foundation, at 201 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55415. If you wish to make this gift a tribute or memorial, please let us know who to inform of your gift.


Gifts of Stock

You may be able to leverage your generosity with a gift of stock or securities to receive additional tax benefits. To make a stock transfer, please contact the Foundation at [email protected] or call us 1-866-770-7570.


Support A Project

Choose a specific research project that best fits your interests and fund that project directly.


Work Place Giving

Many employers offer a workplace giving and/or matching gift option for their employees. Contact your employer directly for more details about matching gift or workplace giving programs they provide. For questions, contact [email protected] or call 1-866-770-7570.  We currently have partnerships with the following organizations to manage workplace/matching gifts: Easy Match, Truist, YourCause, Benevity, United Way, and America’s Charities.


Establish a Fund

You can establish a Donor Advised Fund through the American Brain Foundation and fund research without the need to establish a personal foundation.
