Support Aging Research

Through your dedicated philanthropy, you can help support the mission of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging, which is working to discover new ways to reduce the burden of frailty and increase independence across the health span, especially in older adults.

The Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging is supported by federally funded grants, benefactors and private grants. Mayo Clinic holds dozens of National Institutes of Health grants for research related to aging and care of older adults, and about half are funded by the National Institute on Aging.

It is thanks to grants and generous gifts that the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging is able to make groundbreaking scientific advances to improve lives across the spectrum of aging and offer the best care available to patients.

You can pledge a gift today to help sustain and grow aging research at Mayo Clinic.
