The aim of the Synapsis Foundation is to support research into Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases in Switzerland. With its research programme Alzheimer Research Switzerland (ARS), the Synapsis Foundation has turned in its fundraising to the people in Switzerland with appeals for donations. As a result the backing of innovative research projects in Switzerland as designated in the Foundation's purpose is receiving even wider support.
The Synapsis Foundation Alzheimer Research Switzerland (ARS) is a non-profit, tax-exempt foundation under Swiss law; it is under the jurisdiction of the Swiss Federal Department of Home Affairs. Consequently, donations to the Foundation can be deducted from taxable income in Switzerland to the extent permitted by federal and cantonal tax laws.
To date the Synapsis Foundation has made information available on the internet for interested people via two information platforms: whilst with www.synapsisfoundation.ch we primarily focus on institutional donors and researchers, at www.alzheimer-forschung-schweiz.ch the information is mainly directed at individual donors within the population at large.
These two websites will be combined in the weeks to come. Until then both information platforms can be accessed via this home page.
