Why Your Support Matters
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Everyday we see the tragic impact of Alzheimer’s disease on families. We are grateful for your interest in choosing the Alzheimer’s Association®. Your donation and the donations of others, continue to fund research to find a cure to end this disease and support all those impacted by the disease including families and caregivers. Since awarding our first grants in 1982, the Association has grown into the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research. Over the life of our grants program, we have awarded over $335 million to more than 2,250 projects - all made possible by caring people like you.

By making a donation to our Chapter, you help us to serve the estimated 66,000 people with Alzheimer's disease and their families and caregivers in Northern Virginia, suburban Maryland and the District of Columbia.

Our Chapter ranks among the top of all Alzheimer’s Association chapters for the number of requests for:

  • information and referral services
  • care and counseling consultations
  • education and training programs and
  • support group programs.
