An Easy Way to Contribute to Alzheimer’s Research
Did you know that you can easily contribute to Alzheimer’s research by investing your spare change?
InvestAcure is an online investment platform designed to automatically donate the spare change off of your purchases and put it toward Alzheimer’s research trials.
The idea is that every time you make a purchase online, InvestAcure will automatically round the purchase up to the next dollar and apply the extra amount to your investment portfolio. The amount invested will then go directly to clinical trials for potential Alzheimer’s treatments.
The company was founded in 2017 by Max Tokarsky, an entrepreneur who recognized a serious problem facing Alzheimer’s researchers and borrowed a solution from popular investment apps. Tokarsky has since brought on a board of Alzheimer’s scientists who will weigh in on the most promising trials to fund.
While InvestAcure isn’t your best option if you want your investment to pay off in a profit, it does provide the added benefit of promising that if the trials end up resulting in a treatment for Alzheimer’s, you will get a share of the profits.
