Community events provide the opportunity for connection, support, relationships and resilience while raising awareness, funds and hope for the cure for FTD and related dementias.

A Night with the Arts for FTD

Annual Patient-Centered Art Exhibit and Gala Event to benefit the clinical research program in the Massachusetts General Hospital Frontotemporal Disorders Unit. More than a fundraiser, this is a night to celebrate the amazing patients, caregivers, families, staff, clinicians and colleagues who make up our FTD Community. It is an opportunity for families to attend an event together and create new memories of joy while living with FTD, Alzheimer’s Disease and related disorders.

Strike Out FTD – Annual Family Bowling Event

Join MGH FTD Unit staff members, patients, caregivers, family and friends for a day on the lanes to strike out FTD! This family-friendly event welcomes everyone to have fun and raise awareness, funds and hope that the cure of tomorrow is not so far from the care of today.

Symphony for Science

On May 20, 2019, the Kendall Square Orchestra, led by music director Kristo Kondakçi, presented an evening of music and talks to raise awareness and funding for the clinical research program at the MGH FTD Unit. The inaugural program welcomed 700 guests and included a chamber music performance featuring Keith Lockhart as pianist, world-class soloists from the Boston Symphony playing alongside an ensemble of musicians drawn from the Kendall Square community, and talks by clinicians, researchers, and caregivers. Symphony for Science built a foundation for future collaboration and sparked hope that our path to a cure will be found faster, together.

Community Fundraising

Our clinical research program has benefitted tremendously from the dedication and generosity of so many community members, patients, caregivers and organizations. Philanthropic donations allow us to develop new ideas for treatment, care and a cure for Frontotemporal Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease and related disorders. Every gift is a gift in support of our work and a step closer to a cure.
