Join AWARE now, and become part of the solution.

Founded in 1989 by a small group of passionate and civic-minded Dallas women, AWARE has raised and donated over $12 million so far in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. These dedicated women created A.W.A.R.E. (Alzheimer’s Women’s Association for Resources and Education). Today, men and women of all ages have joined the fight. Today, we are AWARE.

AWARE is a component fund of The Dallas Foundation, a 501(c)(3) publicly supported charity and partners with the Foundation in an annual grant application review process. AWARE is dedicated to fighting Alzheimer’s disease, and our mission is to provide funding and support to nonprofit organizations that are working on the front lines to fight this disease in Dallas and the North Texas region. Through the grant application review process, AWARE selects the most outstanding groups that provide services, programs, education, and resources to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, their families and caregivers, and to organizations doing valuable research to find a prevention and cure.

AWARE is proud to support nonprofit organizations that share our mission and are also dedicated to fighting Alzheimer’s disease. Together we will make a difference.

Join AWARE now. Join the fight. Become part of the solution.
