The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter
In 1982, the Alzheimer’s Association and Related Disorders Organization was established in cooperation with Community Hospitals, Indianapolis to support patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The Chapter affiliated with the National Association in 1988 and became the Alzheimer’s Association - Central Indiana Chapter. By the year 2000, 37 counties in central Indiana were served by the Chapter.
Meanwhile, in 1986, the South Central Indiana Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association was incorporated. Located in Columbus, Indiana, the South Central Chapter originally served five counties. By the year 2000, their service area had grown to 14 counties.
In the year 2000, these two chapters merged to form the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Indiana. In 2003, the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Indiana merged with the Ft. Wayne Alzheimer’s Support Groups to form the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter. With the merger, the Association expanded it’s territory to include Northern Indiana and opened an office in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
The Association is administered by a voluntary Board of Directors and a staff of 24. Over 550 volunteers are also utilized to provide support and education programs to the Association’s 73 counties.
To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
A world without Alzheimer's disease.
The Greater Indiana Chapter is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donor-supported organization. Programs and services are made possible through contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. The generosity of our donors enables us to continue to provide invaluable services and fund research as we work to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease. In our continuing effort to be good stewards of the gifts we receive, in fiscal year 2011 77% of our expenditures provided programs and services to those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
