Alzheimer's Association named one of America's best nonprofits to work for

The Alzheimer's Association has been recognized as number 11 in the top 50 nonprofits to work for as determined by The NonProfit Times, the leading information provider for the nonprofit sector.

The NonProfit Times, in collaboration with Best Companies Group, conducted a national survey and recognition program dedicated to finding and recognizing the best employers in the nonprofit industry. Nonprofit organizations from across the country were involved in this employee assessment process to determine which nonprofits are ranked highest by their employees.

"The Alzheimer's Association is honored to be named one of the best companies to work for by The NonProfit Times," said Harry Johns, Alzheimer's Association president and CEO. "Currently there are more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease. As baby boomers age, the number of individuals impacted as well as the cost to address this disease will increase exponentially. Our staff and volunteers are committed to the success of our organization and to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's."

As one of the best nonprofits to work for, the Chicago-based Alzheimer's Association raises awareness of Alzheimer's disease and is the leader in Alzheimer care, support and research. The organization offers a comprehensive benefits package including retirement, and a commitment to diversity, inclusiveness and a collegial, cooperative and professional work environment.
