Even more good news.

In 2013, Congress awarded Alzheimer’s research an additional $100 million + $22 million for Alzheimer’s care. This funding is a major advancement and it is our recent groundbreaking progress that will really drive our success in allocating funding where it is most needed.

Funding and support are the lifeblood of the Alzheimer’s Association research.

Increasing Concern and Awareness

Continue commitment to strengthen the momentum of the Alzheimer’s disease movement by increasing concern about Alzheimer’s disease; increasing unaided awareness of the Alzheimer’s Association in the Champions audience by 50 percent; and increasing constituent engagement through activities to support all strategic objectives.

How you can help:
Stay informed about the Alzheimer’s movement by regularly visiting #ENDALZ

Advancing Public Policy

Steadily increase the Association’s influence with policymakers to achieve effective implementation of the National Alzheimer’s Plan and established federal and state policy priorities. Accomplish this by executing strategies to develop knowledgeable, professional, productive relationships with state policymakers; mobilizing Alzheimer’s advocates in a comprehensive, coordinated and activist-oriented plan to engage their members of Congress; and through the political activities of a respected and growing sister organization, the Alzheimer’s Impact Movement.

How you can help:
Sign up to become an advocate at and take action when you receive your monthly Advocacy Updates.

Enhancing Care and Support

Increase the number of service contacts provided through quality measured Association programs and services directly delivered through chapters and the national organization through and the Contact Center by 50 percent. Conduct an assessment to identify appropriate standards and evidence-based programs to ensure delivery of quality care, including supportive and diagnostic services. The results of this assessment will lead to collaboration with others within the broader dementia related field to achieve outcomes.

How you can help:
Go to to find Education Programs and Support Groups that are available in your area.

Accelerating Research

Three-Year Strategic Objective: The Alzheimer’s Association continues to be the respected leader and largest non-profit funder in advancing international Alzheimer’s research. We are committed to maintaining our leadership role in convening, collaborating and coordinating to advance research and to playing a significant role in the direction and funding of research into the care, cure and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease through the expansion of private and public funding efforts, domestically and abroad.

Accelerate research funding through the Alzheimer’s International Research to $70 million by the final year of this plan, growing funding by $10 million in FY15, $20 million in FY16 and $40 million in FY17, through a nationwide campaign targeting the additional audience of research-interested donors who have not yet fully engaged with the Association, and by engaging chapters in research education and fundraising and support of local research projects approved by the Alzheimer’s Association Medical and Scientific Advisory Council.

Growing Revenue Support of the Mission

Three-Year Strategic Objective: Achieve significantly greater Association-wide mission impact by growing contributed revenue by an average of 8 percent per year and additional growth through the nationwide research campaign toward the five-year goal of doubling all Association revenue to $450 million by 2019, through the development of an Association-wide philanthropic culture (including boards, staff and volunteers at national and chapters) that fully embraces, prioritizes and invests in partnerships, fundraising and revenue growth priorities as essential keys to the success of the mission.

The organization will commit to working in partnership to rapidly accelerate revenue growth by an average of 8 percent each year through full implementation of the following priority activities.

  • 1. Invest new resources to significantly grow Walk to End Alzheimer's®, identify and begin to implement a new nationwide second signature event, expand planned giving marketing, launch nationwide research campaign and engage corporate relationships to support all appropriate activities.
  • 2. Fully implement major and intermediate giving program and corporate initiatives to realize full potential in all geographies and build pipeline for future growth.
  • 3. Sustain direct marketing, general development, relationship events and foundations revenue.
  • 4. Create and implement a set of organizational best practices to ensure growth of a philanthropic culture.
