Charity of the Month: Alzheimer’s Association

The Gingrich Foundation

The Gingrich Foundation is pleased to announce that our January Charity of the Month is the Alzheimer’s Association.

More than 6 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s, and by the year 2050, that number could reach up to 13 million. Alzheimer’s is the fifth leading cause of death for adults aged sixty-five and older and the seventh leading cause of death for all adults. Alzheimer’s kills more individuals than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.

Finding a cure for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia is critical. This is the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association, which was founded in 1980 to promote scientific and medical breakthroughs to cure the disease and to improve care for those living with it.

Today, the Alzheimer’s Association contributes millions of dollars to support and fund research projects and publishes the leading scientific journal on this disease. The Alzheimer’s Association also maintains facilities across the country and strengthens caregivers and families.

Please join the Gingrich Foundation in supporting the Alzheimer’s Association today.
