About Alois


Dr. Alzheimer

The Alois Society is named after Alois Alzheimer, the pioneering physician whose investigations in 1906 were the first steps toward understanding the disease that now bears his name.

Alois Society members provide the financial leadership needed to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research, caregiving and advocacy initiatives on behalf of those who are touched by Alzheimer's, as well as intensify our efforts to eliminate the disease once and for all.

Whether members participated in our Walk to End Alzheimer's, attended a Gala or donated directly, we appreciate their generosity and dedication to our cause.

We rely on Alois Society Members to help us:

  • Increase awareness among the public of the Alzheimer's Association as a source of support and information and as the leading Alzheimer's organization.
  • Accelerate as much research as possible through our peer-reviewed research grant program, which has awarded over $315 million to scientists since 1982.
  • Provide a host of special programs, services and workshops to help caregivers deal effectively with their many responsibilities.
  • Serve as the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for additional funding of Alzheimer's research, support and care initiatives at both the state and federal levels.

Help us do even more. Join the Alois Society today.
