Awards of $20,000 to honor USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and universities for existing projects that benefit individuals suffering from Alzheimer's disease and related dementias and support their family members or other unpaid caregivers. Eligible programs must have been implemented and running in 2018 and/or 2019.

Awards will be given in the following categories: 

  • Creative Expression: Programs or projects that use novel, creative approaches to support persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their family/informal caregivers. Examples include art, music, theater, poetry, multimedia (e.g. film, documentary, radio), or technology used for creative engagement or other types of creative expression.
  • Diverse/Multicultural Communities: Programs or projects that address a gap or chart a new way to deliver services, support, or outreach to family/informal caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease or related dementias in diverse racial/ethnic, age, religious/spiritual, LGBTQ, rural/remote, limited income, and other groups of caregivers with unique needs.
  • Public Policy: Programs or projects that advocate for policy or systems changes for the benefit of persons with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias and/or their family/informal caregivers. These efforts could focus on legislation, executive or administrative changes, media or public awareness campaigns, advocacy campaigns, or any other actions to strengthen public or private recognition and support of family/informal caregivers.

The purpose of these awards is to recognize organizations whose programs have demonstrated success. The nominated program has to have been active during the calendar year of the award title, or the year prior. If the program involves a major culminating event, that event must have occurred prior to application deadline. If your program is active today because it is recurring, then it must have completed at least the first cycle or round of activity in order for it to qualify. Ongoing programs must have been active long enough to demonstrate some success.
