Hope for Tomorrow Dementia Research Catalyst Grant
The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories has announced a $1Million investment to dementia research in Alberta. The Hope for Tomorrow Dementia Research Catalyst Grant is a one-time funding opportunity provided to researchers in Alberta. The awarded funds must be matched by a partner organization which translates to a $2Million investment. This investment is in addition to the funds we have currently committed to dementia research.
As an organization we want to provide ‘Hope for Tomorrow’ to those living with the dementia and through this grant highlights the ongoing need for quality dementia research in Alberta.
The Hope for Tomorrow Dementia Research Catalyst Grant was made possible through the generosity of Alberta’s donors, who have entrusted us to steward their donations appropriately.
