Memorial Fund

In her precious 22 years, Aaliyah achieved more than many do in several lifetimes... An illuminating factor was her conviction to touch and help others. The Aaliyah Memorial Fund was created as a vehicle whereby her fans, friends and family can contribute to and support causes that Aaliyah found important. The beneficiaries and charities include the Agape Christian Center, Alzheimer's Association of Los Angeles, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Red Cross, Detroit School of Arts, EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women, Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research, Harlem Breast Cancer Center, Hofstra University, Jenna Druck Foundation, Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, National Alzheimer's Association, National Breast Cancer Coalition, National Kidney Foundation, Revlon/UCLA Breast Center, Sacred Heart Parish, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Step Up Women's Network. The Haughton family is committed to these causes among others that affect families all over the world from every walk of life.

For Aaliyah and her comrades that left us August 25th, 2001, there is much we can do as a benevolent community to keep Aaliyah's dreams and legacy alive. With your contribution, research and hope for cures will continue on with your help in Aaliyah's name.
