You can establish a donor advised fund to be managed by the American Brain Foundation. A donor can create a fund with a simple written agreement and then the donor (and other family members, if desired) recommend grants from your fund to any nonprofit organizations whose missions complement that of the American Brain Foundation.

You can establish an Endowment Fund to annually support our mission or a specific research area. When you make an endowment gift, your gift is maintained in perpetuity and creates a lasting, meaningful difference. A donor can create an Endowment fund with a gift and written agreement. Endowment Funds can continue to be added to.
