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. In fact, 86 percent of the money we raised is put directly into programs and services. This is just one reason that AFA has been awarded Charity Navigator’s top rating of four stars for seven consecutive years.
Donations help fund our National Toll-Free Helpline, which offers counseling from licensed social workers, resources and referrals; educational and community programs; grants for member organizations that provide direct care and support; and national initiatives such as our National Memory Screening Program, professional trainings, and AFA’s Young Leadership Division. In addition, through strategic partnerships, AFA funds research for treatment and a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
