We respect the right of our donors to know how their money is being spent to further the Alzheimer's Association mission. We are proud to report that the Association earns high marks from those agencies whose job it is to monitor the activities of nonprofit organizations.
The Alzheimer's Association national organization meets or exceeds relevant watchdog standards in its allocation of donor dollars. According to the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, nonprofit organizations should spend at least 65 percent of its total expenses on program activities, with remaining funds going to administrative and fundraising expenses.
The national Alzheimer's Association organization continues to meet and exceed these minimum standards with 78 percent of our total annual expenses going to care, support, research, awareness and advocacy activities.
Funding for Alzheimer's care, support, advocacy and research comes from individual donors and from organizations whose work is aligned with our mission. Our collaborative partners include government agencies, corporations, foundations and membership organizations.
