We respect the right of our donors to know how their money is being spent to further the Alzheimer's Association mission. We are proud to report that the Association earns high marks from those agencies whose job it is to monitor the activities of nonprofit organizations.

 
Allocation of expenses

A donor-supported organization, the Alzheimer’s 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.

According to the BBB’s Wise Giving Alliance, nonprofit organizations should spend at least 65 percent of its total expenses on program activities, with remaining funds going to administrative and fundraising expenses. The Alzheimer's Association organization continues to meet and exceed these minimum standards with 79 percent of our total annual expenses going to care, support, research, awareness and advocacy activities.

Your gift helps us to accelerate our mission to eliminate Alzheimer's disease and to provide the best care and support to those living with Alzheimer's.
