The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are strongly committed to maximizing funds spent on program services and minimizing administrative and fundraising expenses. Currently, 88 percent of the money we raise goes directly into programs and services. This is just one reason that AFA has been awarded Charity Navigator’s top rating of four stars and is a Better Business Bureau-accredited charity.
Donations help fund our National Toll-Free Helpline, which offers counseling from licensed social workers, resources and referrals; educational materials and conferences; grants for member organizations that provide direct care and support; and national initiatives such as our National Memory Screening Program, as well as professional education and training, and AFA’s Young Leadership Division. In addition, through strategic partnerships, AFA funds research for medical treatment and a cure.
