Screen Legend Kirk Douglas Gives $15 mil to Build Alzheimer's Center
He used his birthday party to announce the $15 million donation to the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF).
The money will help pay for the Kirk Douglas Care Pavilion, which will be able to take care of up to 80 Alzheimer’s patients from the entertainment industry. Douglas and his wife, Anne, have donated $40 million to the fund over the years and in 1992 launched the fund’s first Alzheimer’s facility, Harry’s Haven, named for Douglas’ father.
