Extended family in Colombia may help scientists prevent Alzheimer’s disease
Antioquia, Colombia, is home to the largest concentration of people with a rare genetic mutation that makes them nearly 100 percent certain to develop Alzheimer’s disease. “60 Minutes” reports on a family at the center of a multimillion-dollar, National Institutes of Health study. The Alzheimer's Association has led additional public/private funding to the Banner Alzheimer's Institute to further research to determine if Alzheimer's disease may be preventable.

Help us reach our Giving Tuesday goal!
Giving Tuesday
Dear Tushar,
Please join us today for Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, and make a meaningful gift to Glaucoma Research Foundation.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable blindness. It affects more than 60 million people worldwide and currently there is no cure. But with your help, we can speed the development of new treatments and a cure.
We have set a goal of raising $5,000 today to support our research and education programs. Your gift can make all the difference.

Please make your online donation today and give hope to patients and families for a future free of glaucoma.

Thank you for your support and being a part of the Glaucoma Research Foundation family.

Today only, your gift will be TRIPLED

Unleash your Giving Tuesday power today.
Fight hunger & poverty with 3x the impact until midnight.
You may have woken up this morning believing it would be just another day. I'm writing to let you know that the next 24 hours could be life-changing.

For today only, you have a chance to unleash the potential of a struggling family in just one act – by joining our Triple Match for Giving Tuesday.

From now until midnight, every dollar you give to Grameen Foundation will be worth triple, up to $275,000, thanks to Jane Pauley and the Grameen Foundation Board of Directors.

If you seize this opportunity, you will provide three times as much self-help resources for entrepreneurial women around the world.

Please, friend, let's make Giving Tuesday more than "another day." Your dollar already goes so far in poor communities – and today it can go even farther. Help these families break the cycle of poverty for good.

Steve Hollingworth
President & CEO

  Your #GivingTuesday gift can go twice as far.
$35 → $70
$60 → $120
$120 → $240
Dear Tushar,
Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. And now, there is even more reason to give, because when you make a donation, your gift can go twice as far in the fight against Alzheimer's disease with this special matching gift challenge.
Longtime Alzheimer's Association supporter Cheryl Gross has made a pledge to give an exceptionally generous $1 million to the Association if we can raise that same amount by December 15. Cheryl is passionate about fighting Alzheimer's and was inspired to make this generous gift in honor of her mother, who died from Alzheimer's in 2011.
Your tax-deductible year-end donation of $35 can become $70, $60 can become $120 or $120 can become $240.
And when you make a gift, please share this special #GivingTuesday opportunity on social media, and tag #GivingTuesday and #EndALZ in your Facebook and Twitter posts.
Any amount you give by December 15 will support Alzheimer's research, care and support. Your gift will move us even closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease. So please take advantage of this special matching gift challenge — and #GivingTuesday — and give today.
Many thanks,

Donna McCullough
Chief Development Officer
