Thank you for considering a financial gift to our USC Memory and Aging Center

Our USC Memory and Aging Center is primarily funded through grants, foundations and industry. We also receive donations from the families and friends affected by Alzheimer Disease and other forms of dementia.

It is these donations that allow us to stretch our efforts by stretching our available research dollars. From the smallest to the largest donation, we work hard to use all donation gifts prudently and efficiently.

The donations have allowed us to purchase lab supplies for new investigators, contribute funding to community and professional education seminars, and to fund novel research projects.

To make a donation:

Donations to the Center can be made online with a credit card.


Donations can be made by writing a check or writing down your credit card information and mailing it to us. You can print this form, fill it in, and include it in the envelope with your donation.


To set up a memorial fund, a specific fundraising event or an online memorial donation “button” simply contact our Center by phone or email and we will help you organize it in a way that works for you. We can provide you with brochures about our Center and donation instructions and mailing materials. After each event, all the donors will be sent thank you notes for their donations. In addition, the organizing family will be sent a thank you note and a list of all the donors who sent contributions.

Our Center is able to accept large asset donations such as vehicles, real estate and trusts. To arrange to make a large asset donation, you should contact our Center and you will be referred to the University office that will work with you to complete the process.
