More than 55 Million people live with dementia. Our dad happened to be one of them. We can easily become desensitized to statistics, but when it’s someone you love, you realize that even one person living with the disease is too many. Contribute to Alzheimer's Association  Right arrow

About Alzheimer's Association

The Alzheimer's Association focuses on ending Alzheimer's and every other type of dementia with an emphasis on research, public education, detection, reducing risk and providing family and patient care and support.

Frequently asked questions

Answered by a team member at Alzheimer's Association

  • What is your mission?

    The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.

  • How are donations used?

    The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s disease care, support and research. We provide services to those affected by Alzheimer’s, advocate for policy change and scientific funding, and advance research toward prevention, treatment and, ultimately, a cure. A donor-supported organization, the Association allocates its funds in an ethical and responsible manner that exceeds the rigorous standards of America’s most
    experienced charity evaluator, the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance. The Association also holds a National Charity Seal from the Alliance.

  • What can be done with a $100 donation?

    $100 can fund a care consultant to answer phones in the middle of the night through the Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline - 800.272.3900

  • What progress has been made already thanks to your donors?

    Because of our donor support, the Alzheimer's Association has been able to receive over 220,000 calls to our 24/7 Helpline (800.272.3900), offering free confidential support and information. We've granted more than $59 million to 253 new scientific investigations in aggressive pursuit of our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia®. And we've led advocacy efforts to achieve a $300 million increase in federal Alzheimer’s and dementia research funding.

  • What is the history of your organization?

    The Alzheimer’s Association was founded in 1980 by a group of family caregivers and individuals who recognized the need for an organization that would unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s and advance research into the disease.
