Help bring about effective prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s by making a gift to the Knight Family DIAN-TU today.

Donors who participate in the Knight Alzheimer’s Primary Prevention Challenge will help Washington University secure $6.5 million in matching funds pledged by Joanne Knight to support the first Alzheimer’s disease primary prevention trial.

Contributions will be put to work immediately to help cover expenses associated with the trial, such as scientific and clinical personnel; equipment and supplies; patient enrollment and retention; data management and analysis; laboratory testing and imaging; and regulatory compliance.

Additional details

  • Gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar until challenge funds are exhausted.
  • Pledges payable over a period of up to five years also will be matched.
  • Matching funds received from corporations or other entities will count toward the donor’s contribution.
  • Donors are welcome to make gifts through their donor-advised funds. Please contact Alexandra Carr at 314-935-3498 for specific guidelines.

Help us reach our goal to enable the first-ever primary prevention clinical trial for Alzheimer’s disease.
