Help Keep Up the Momentum and Push Alzheimer's Disease Research Forward

We are honoured to receive a $4 million dollar matching gift from local philanthropist, Don Hunter. This transformational gift will match all donations towards advancing Alzheimer’s research up to the $4 million limit. That means when you donate $100, Don’s gift doubles it.

“The generous gift Don Hunter has made to the University Hospital Foundation is building the bridge to bring potentially world-changing Alzheimer’s treatment to my family and friends and yours. We urge the public to match Don’s gift and join us in finishing that bridge,” shared UHF President & CEO Dr. Jodi Abbott, “It takes support from as small as $100, to the size of Don’s contribution to fuel the innovative, life-altering treatments and cures needed to end diseases like Alzheimer’s once and for all. This is an opportunity to tackle a significant health challenge and make a difference that will be felt around the globe and in the lives of millions of people.”
