Charity Watchdogs

Organizations that offer assessments of nonprofit organizations provide an invaluable service to the public. They evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each organization according to a strict set of standards, allowing donors to have full confidence that their money will be put to use in a manner deserving of the contribution.


Charity Navigator provides reviews and ratings for over 8,000 non-profit organizations in the United States. Each charity is rated on many aspects of their operations including accountability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility.
For seven consecutive rating periods, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has received 4-stars, the highest level possible.
“Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way,” says Charity Navigator’s founder and chairman John Dugan. “This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Cure Alzheimer’s Fund from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
Very few nonprofits have received 4-stars for so many consecutive ratings. Charity Navigator reports that less than 5% of the organizations they rate achieve this goal.


GuideStar’s mission is to “revolutionize philanthropy by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving.”

GuideStar is the largest evaluator of charities, providing information on more than 1.8 million nonprofit’s from around the world. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is honored to have achieved the highest rating offered by GuideStar-the designation of Platinum.
