Make a Donation

There are a number of ways to help fight diseases. Whether you become a monthly donor or donate in honor of or in memory of a loved one, each generous gift moves us a step closer to finding cures for brain and eye diseases.

Make a Gift to Support:

Alzheimer’s Disease Research

Macular Degeneration Research

National Glaucoma Research

Or, make a general gift to BrightFocus and we will distribute it to the area of greatest need.

BrightFocus Foundation communicates with the public through postal mail and other means to encourage financial support for our mission to drive innovative research worldwide; promote awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, and glaucoma; and encourage the public to take action to better manage their health.  We widely share information on symptoms, treatments, and prevention of these diseases.  As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidelines, BrightFocus Foundation allocates a portion of our direct mail costs to program services.
