A focused approach to Alzheimer’s philanthropy, education, and awareness

Pat Summitt and her son, Tyler Summitt, founded the Pat Summitt Foundation in 2011 with the hope that one day, no family has to hear that a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The Foundation focuses on advancing research for treatment and a cure, providing care and support for patients and caregivers, and educating the public about Alzheimer’s disease.

Grants are awarded to not-for-profit organizations through a comprehensive approach that focuses on:


to treat, prevent, cure and, ultimately, eradicate Alzheimer’s disease.


and awareness of the disease, its onset and treatment.


services to patients, their families and caregivers.
