About Us

The Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota has been providing services, information, and advocacy for more than 30 years to people with dementia, their families and health care providers.

This chapter is one of seven founding chapters of the National Alzheimer's Association, headquartered in Chicago. It was started by family caregivers who came together around a common need of getting support and help for their loved ones with dementia. Since 1979, our donor-supported, nonprofit Alzheimer’s Association has provided reliable information and care consultation; created supportive services for families; increased funding for dementia research; and influenced public policy changes.

Our mission
To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our vision
A world without Alzheimer's disease.®

Community Health Charities

The Alzheimer’s Association is a member charity of Community Health Charities, an alliance of leading nonprofit health research and service organizations whose mission is to improve lives affected by chronic illness by investing in health research, services, and education.

Accountability Standards

The Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota has undergone a review by the Charities Review Council, which evaluated our public disclosure, financial activities, governance and fundraising. This review determined that the Association meets the Council’s accountability standards — demonstrating our integrity and transparency to the people who support us.
