The Thomas Foundation supports CHeBA's research with the objective of providing better assessment and care for people suffering Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
The Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing has been able to conduct significant research into the ageing brain with the support of our major donor, Montefiore Home, who has partnered with us since the launch of the Centre in 2012. CHeBA and Montefiore share a mutual goal of improving the quality of life of the older population, and Professor Henry Brodaty is the Montefiore Chair of Healthy Brain Ageing. We are extremely grateful to Montefiore Home and David Freeman AM for the ongoing support provided to CHeBA. Montefiore Home is Australia’s leading aged care provider with a commitment to providing exceptional levels of care.

The CHeBA Champions initiative was sponsored by Intellectual Ventures, a company with a strong global presence, until the end of 2014. Founded in 2000, Intellectual Ventures is a US based private equity company with over $5.7 billion under management that invests in invention. Intellectual Ventures finds solutions no one else can, using a network of over 4000 inventors and relationships with over 400 of the world’s top academic institutions. Working with companies all over the world, Intellectual Ventures defines and solves problems, and protects the intellectual property in areas as broad as food, packaging, construction, information technology and medical devices. With over 40,000 IP assets, IV is building a marketplace where inventors and companies can shape the future. Australian President, Mr Paul Levins, says "it makes sense for us to support an organisation dedicated to researching how the brain is maintained over time and how degenerative diseases occur and how they can be prevented, given the reason for Intellectual Ventures' existence is actually the product of the human brain: ideas, creation and innovation."
The Italian Chamber, in conjunction with Duncan Dovico Chartered Accountants and Tony Camphin of Strategic Corporate Direction hosted a paid presentation by Professor Henry Brodaty and donated all profits from the evening to CHeBA.
A representative of the groups said: "We were delighted to support The Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing and we are very grateful that Professor Henry Brodaty could take the time from his busy schedule to give our seminar attendees an insight into the challenges facing us as we live longer and confront diseases of the ageing brain. This is definitely a topic and a cause we will visit in our future seminar series. Thank you Professor Brodaty for your compassionate, caring and thought provoking address."
We are very grateful for the support of companies that provide in kind donations for CHeBA’s events and initiatives.
