Our Impact

Our Impact

On behalf of the nearly 7 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and their 11 million caregivers, AIM and our advocates impress upon policymakers the growing crisis Alzheimer’s presents to our nation's families and the economy. We’re inspiring these leaders to take bold action at the federal and state level.

AIM is able to engage with lawmakers in all elements of their job — including activities considered electoral or political — to keep the Alzheimer's community and our issues top-of-mind with elected officials.

Together with our volunteer advocates and members we:

  • Advocate for legislation that advances research and enhances care and support services for individuals living with dementia and their caregivers.
  • Support the re-election of our congressional champions in both parties. If they fight for us, we'll fight for them.
  • Speak on behalf of the Alzheimer’s community throughout each election cycle, when 501(c)(3) organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association are unable.

We have driven policymakers to take historic steps to address Alzheimer’s and other dementia — but much more remains to be done.

Progress in the Fight Against Alzheimer’s

Since its founding in 2010, AIM, the Alzheimer’s Association and our advocates have been unrelenting in our fight for a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. By securing robust increases for Alzheimer’s and dementia research funding and advancing critical legislation, we have made a positive and meaningful impact on people living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.

It is crucial that we have champions in Congress who support additional research funding and critical care and support legislation. Through AIM, we’re building strong congressional champions and moving our priorities forward.

Our Commitment to Transparency

The Alzheimer’s Impact Movement (AIM), a separately incorporated advocacy affiliate of the Alzheimer’s Association, forges partnerships with all those who share the same commitment to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. That includes other Alzheimer’s organizations, organizations in the aging space, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute on Aging, universities, corporations and the pharmaceutical, biotech and device industries. With our broad partnerships, we are committed to transparency.

We work with ethical companies, organizations and individuals who share our mission and can help achieve a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia while maintaining independence and actively safeguarding against outside influence. 

Importantly, no contribution from or partnership with any entity or individual impacts AIM decision-making, nor our positions on issues related to people living with Alzheimer’s, other dementia and their families. This section is dedicated to transparent sharing of financial and partnership information with all constituents.
