Governance Policies and Ethics
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

The Alzheimer's Association takes our position as a nonprofit leader and adherence to external standards very seriously. The Alzheimer's Association is in full compliance with the stringent Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance Standards and our policies are compliant with The Independent Sector, National Health Council, and Direct Marketing Association standards.

While holding ourselves accountable to highest external standards, we work hard each day to fulfill our mission: to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

To preserve the public's trust and protect the integrity of the Alzheimer's Association, we have developed the following policies that include:

  • Code of Ethics
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Whistleblower Policies
