AWARE is dedicated to fighting Alzheimer's disease by providing funding and support to programs, projects, and research of nonprofit organizations that actively help individuals affected by Alzheimer's in Dallas and the greater North Texas area.
AWARE is a component fund of The Dallas Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) publicly supported charity. In partnership with the Foundation AWARE conducts an annual grant review process by which grant applicants are carefully and thoughtfully vetted to ensure that grant dollars are awarded to organizations that provide outstanding services to Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers, and to those research institutions that are at the forefront of medical research in the treatment, prevention, and cure of Alzheimer’s disease.
