It was founded in 2010 by George and Trish Vradenburg. They knew they could bring more urgency and momentum to the fight to end Alzheimer’s, which had earlier claimed Trish’s mother. The organization has grown to a nearly $8 million operation with diverse revenues streams (including corporate, government, individual and family foundation support), active advocacy programs, robust digital outreach/engagement, events in various cities throughout the year, a 13-member Board of Directors and a staff of approximately 25 (a combination of full- and part-time staff).
