ABOUT THE DISNEY FAMILY FUND
As a loving memorial tribute to Patricia Disney, her children (Susan Disney Lord, Abigail Disney, Roy P. Disney, and Timothy Disney) established the Disney Family Fund to benefit Alzheimer's Greater Los Angeles. The Fund supports programs and services for families from diverse communities throughout Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire. The Disney family recognizes that Alzheimer's does not discriminate; therefore, they are committed to ensuring that no one goes without access to essential programs, services, and resources, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, geography, age, or socioeconomic status. The Disney Family Fund provides support, education, and connections when people impacted by Alzheimer's or dementia need it most.
