Donate at tax time
California law allows taxpayers to contribute money to the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Research Fund by checking a box on your state income tax return. Contributions through the tax check-off may be claimed as charitable contributions on your tax returns the following year.
To contribute, go to line 401 on your state tax form 540 where the Alzheimer’s Research Fund is named. Indicate the amount that you’d like to contribute. That amount will either be deducted from your refund or added to the amount you owe when making your payment. Funds are distributed by the Director of the California Department of Health Services through competitive grants to scientists based at California public or private non-profit organizations.
We can work with you to find the solution that best meets your philanthropic needs and intentions. For more information about pledges, planned gifts, bequests, matching gifts, named endowments or other gifts, please contact
