With the help of our donor partners, we hope to increase knowledge about the spectrum of brain and spinal diseases and develop new strategies to treat them. Your commitment could help us advance a promising research study, recruit a talented physician-scientist, develop a new educational program for our trainees, or purchase a key piece of equipment or technology.

For your convenience, a number of giving options are available, including outright gifts of cash, tribute gifts, corporate-matched gifts, planned gifts or pledges payable over a three- to five-year period. You can donate online through Northwestern University or the Northwestern Memorial Foundation, or send a check made out to either of these 501c3 organizations using the addresses listed below. Please note, either on the check or in an accompanying letter, that we are the intended recipient of your gift.
