    Help us to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for those in need and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

    Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that damages and eventually destroys brain cells, leading to memory loss and changes in thinking and other brain functions. It usually develops slowly and gradually gets worse as brain function declines and brain cells eventually wither and die. Ultimately, Alzheimer’s is fatal, and currently, there is no cure.

    Help people with Alzheimer’s and their families by donating to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) and show your support for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses, and their caregivers.

    About the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America:

    Your donation will help support the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA) commitment to provide optimal care to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and their caregivers.

    Uniting 1,600+ member organizations, AFA raises awareness, educates families and professionals, and addresses the practical, emotional and financial needs related to the disease via hands-on programs and services in local communities, and myriad care-focused national initiatives and grants to individuals and organizations.

    Caring for the Nation…One Person at a Time.
