K.A. Smaltz Foundation
The Kenneth A. Smaltz, Sr. Foundation (501c3) for the cure and care of Alzheimer’s was founded in August 2012. Its dual mission is to continue to support local care centers for people with dementia. Money raised by KASSRF goes to a scholarship fund and is given out to families who cannot afford to send their parents to these centers. The centers care for people at all stages of dementia in beautiful, safe homelike environments. We also plan to provide fellowship grants to clinical fellows attending the Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas – a clinical postdoctoral training position for physicians who have completed their neurology training.
