Grant Information

AFA provides several grant opportunities to our member organizations to help further our mission of providing optimal care and services to individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses, and their families. Grants are awarded through a competitive application process.

Organizations that have been awarded an AFA Grant in the previous cycle must wait one calendar year before applying again for that particular grant.


Spring Bi-Annual Grant

Our bi-annual membership grants are designed to provide funding for programs and services that help further AFA’s mission of delivering optimal care and services to individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses, and to their families and caregivers.

Applications for the spring cycle of the bi-annual grant must be postmarked by February 1st.


Spring Milton & Phyllis Berg Respite Care Grant

The Phyllis and Milton Berg Family Respite Care Grants are awarded in memory of the deceased parents of Barry E. Berg, who has served on AFA’s board of trustees since 2004. Both of Berg’s parents passed away in 2009: his mother, Phyllis, had Alzheimer’s disease, and his father, Milton, was a devoted caregiver.

These grants are awarded to AFA member organizations to help provide respite care scholarships to families in need. Studies have shown that respite care can help improve quality of life for both the individual living with Alzheimer’s and family caregivers by providing social engagement and cognitive stimulation for the individual, and affording a much-needed time-out for the caregiver.

Applications for the spring cycle of the Phyllis and Milton Berg Family Respite Care Grants must be postmarked by May 1st.


Anne & Irving Brodsky Innovation Grant

Initiated in 2005, The Anne & Irving Brodsky Innovation Grant is an annual grant that provides funding to one Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s nonprofit organization per year for an innovative program that improves the lives of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other related illnesses, and their families.

The program must demonstrate creativity and uniqueness, greatest need, and replication potential.

Applications for the Anne & Irving Brodsky Innovation Grant must be postmarked by May 15th.

Organizations applying for the Brodsky Innovation Grant may contact AFA at 866-232-8484 if they have questions about this proposal request.
