The Alzheimer's Association, Central New York Chapter is proud of the quality of service it provides individuals and families in Central New York. Funding for Alzheimer 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. Every dollar raised supports the full mission of the Alzheimer's Association:
  • The delivery of care and support programs to caregivers across the country
  • Funding research that will one day lead to a cure.
The Alzheimer's Association national organization meets or exceeds relevant watchdog standards in its allocation of donor dollars. According to the Better Business Bureau (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.
