Banner Alzheimer’s Institute has solidified its position as the place “where hope begins and Alzheimer’s ends,” thanks to the generosity of nearly 3,000 individuals, corporations and foundations contributing to the Breakthrough Campaign. Banner Alzheimer’s Foundation, the philanthropic resource for BAI, announced in April that its $40 million goal for the campaign, begun in 2011, has been reached. The successful campaign was led by chairs Jerre and Mary Joy Stead and vice chairs Bill and Julie Lavidge. Jerre and Bill both lost their mothers to Alzheimer’s disease.

While the BAI Breakthrough Campaign has concluded, Banner Alzheimer’s Foundation will continue to raise support for Alzheimer’s care and research. Today, an estimated 5.2 million Americans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s disease; by 2050, as many as 13.8 million will have it, unless a preventive treatment is found.
