About Us

The Neurological Foundation is a New Zealand charity that funds vital research and ongoing education into neurological disorders, which includes diseases and disorders of the brain and nervous system.

The Neurological Foundation is able to fund life changing research through generous continued donations from our members and supporters.

Since 1971, research funded by the Foundation has given neurologists a greater understanding of disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, motor neurone diseases, stroke, multiple sclerosis, ALS, migraine, epilepsy, dementia, traumatic brain injury and dozens of other debilitating conditions. The work of many researchers and clinicians funded by the Foundation has led to numerous ground-breaking discoveries and better understanding of neurological conditions.

Together, we’re working towards a brighter future, funding work to prevent or cure these disorders wherever possible, and to provide those who do suffer with a much greater quality of life. Recent advancements have led to successful treatment options for some of these conditions where previously no treatment existed. We’re proud that the work we fund saves lives and gives many patients a greater quality of living, and with the help of our supporters we hope we can continue to improve the lives of New Zealanders and people around the world.
