MIND Institute
Support the MIND Institute on Give Day!


The UC Davis MIND Institute is a world renown collaborative research center, committed to the awareness, understanding, prevention, and treatment of the challenges associated with neurodevelopmental disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Fragile X Syndrome and ADHD. COVID-19 has required all of us at the MIND Institute to change how we work and interact with the community. We have a strong foundation in the utilization of cutting-edge technology to educate, and provide care to families. We’ve also expanded our telehealth work substantially while keeping the needs of individuals and families at the forefront of our work. This Give Day, please consider making a donation to help the MIND Institute remain dynamic, innovative and responsive to those families in need of support.


Your gift – no matter the amount – can have a significant impact. When you support the MIND Institute, you are investing in our team to find the causes, develop improved treatments and prevent the onset of neurodevelopmental disabilities


This Give Day, each gift moves us one step closer to our goal of 100 gifts. Your contribution will help unlock our challenge gifts, totaling $24,000 from our Give Day challenge sponsors.
