What does your Alzheimer’s Association donations go towards?

The Alzheimer’s Association is an international organization fighting to help make a difference in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease. Many people from around the globe support the fundraising efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association, but some may be wonder, “Where does the money go? What does the money raised help with? How does my dollar make a difference?”

The Alzheimer Association uses donations to:

  • provide care and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s
  • drive research toward treatment and prevention, in hopes of finding a cure
  • serve as the voice for the needs and rights of those affected by Alzheimer’s

Providing care and support

The Alzheimer’s Association has an online message board and a 24/7 helpline that offers assistance to those seeking information. Support groups are also available to help those facing the disease realize they are not alone in the journey as people from their community lock arms to be there for one another.

  • Online message boards through ALZConnected®
  • A free nationwide 24/7 Helpline (800.272.3900) offering information and referrals

Local Support Groups:

  • Caregiver Support Groups are held at Carillon Assisted Living, the Enrichment Center of Lee County, and the Alzheimer’s Association Office
  • Male Caregiver Support Group is available at WakeMed-Cary

What about research?

The Alzheimer’s Association provides more than $405 million to over 2,600 scientific proposals which help lead to huge treatment advancements. For example, the global research community came together and designed the first new diagnostic guidelines for Alzheimer’s in 27 years.

Speak up for the needs and rights of those affected!

  • Help pass legislation like the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (mandated a national plan to fight Alzheimer’s)
  • Continue to help ensure federal policy reflects the Alzheimer’s epidemic (which resulted in a $350 million increase in funding)

BBA Wise Giving Alliance non-profit organizations should allocate 65% of total expenses on program activities, with the remainder going to fundraising or administrative needs. The Alzheimer’s Association actually gives a minimum of 79% of its total budget to the needs of Alzheimer’s, a standard possible because of the tremendous volunteer support.
