Fueling research, treatments & cures

Donations are an important source of funding for the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute. They help support patient care, new technologies and groundbreaking translational and clinical research that could lead to better treatments and, ultimately, cures.

Donors contributed more than $16 million to the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute in FY14 (July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.)

The UC Foundation and UC Health Foundation collaborate to manage donations to the Institute. Gifts can be made to the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute Discretionary Fund or to individual funds associated with individual centers or programs. Individual center funds can be viewed under the “Giving” tab on each center’s Web site. For more information, or to make a donation, please contact:
