We want to thank you for being a great supporter of our research. As a reminder, the tax year ends December 31st. Would you please consider making a final tax deductible donation before the end of the year? We would certainly appreciate it. The federal IRA Charitable Rollover Law will expire on December 31, 2013. Individuals ages 70½ or older have until then to make gifts directly from their IRAs to Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation without paying income taxes on the distribution.

Please click here for our online donation page or here to print our mail donation form if you prefer to give by check.

Again, many thanks from our family to yours. We wish all of you, a Healthy, Happy and Safe New Year!!
