The non-profit Alzheimer's Association is funded through individual contributions, foundation grants, corporate contributions, and planned gifts.


Who are we 














The non-profit Alzheimer's Association is the national voice for people with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, their families and caregivers.

Nationally, approximately 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. By mid-century, as many as 16 million will likely have Alzheimer's, unless a cure or prevention is found.

Over 116,000 people in Minnesota and North Dakota are afflicted with Alzheimer's.

In Minnesota and North Dakota, the Alzheimer's Association provides information, support, and education and training for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer's. Anyone may contact us through the 24/7 Helpline (1.800.272.3900), the chapter website (, or during our many educational presentations throughout the two states.
