The Fisher Center is an outstanding organization dedicated to Alzheimer's research. They stand out from other nonprofits because of the percentage of funds they use that go toward research instead of administration. Truly a hardworking group of people!

The Fisher Center Foundation stands out because of its efficiency in using donor funds for the purpose of Alzheimer's research. The foundation is a four-star charity according to Charity Navigator. As someone who works directly with the foundation, I can attest to the commitment and dedication of Fisher Center Foundation staff to their stated goals, and the remarkable achievements that the Fisher Center itself has made, thanks to the foundation's wise use of funds. I would confidently recommend the foundation to anyone seeking to make an impact with their donation in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

The Fisher Foundation has demonstrated a generosity and collaboration that many organizations only dream of. Throughout the tenure of their late President, Michael Stern, and since his passing, staff of the Fisher Foundation have done much to demonstrate a commitment to educating Alzheimer's caregivers and work to relieve the strain of caring through the use of different communication strategies. Further, while Fisher is not directly involved in program development, colleagial relationships established over the years have continued as Fisher staff serve as a sounding board, based on their exposure to national and world-wide Alzheimer's caregivers.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation has the Nobel Prize winning Dr. Paul Greengard as its medical director. He is a brilliant and caring professional in the field of Alzheimer's. The Foundation also has a very impressive record of putting the majority of money donated to actual research and have very low overhead. I recommend them enthusiastically.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation has partnered with us on many projects over the course of several years. Fisher staff are well versed in Alzheimer's research and care and provide useful information for professionals and family caregivers on the diagnosis, treatment and research of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Their website Alzinfo.org contains a wealth of important information and their magazine is a useful tool for the lay person in understanding AD and getting needed help.

I am a proud donor to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research. My wife
suffers from this disease and when I considered making a donation to a
good research facility I was recommended to the Fisher Foundation by my lawyer. I was most grateful for this recommendation as I later learned
about their research in this field and that the Managing Chairman
was Dr. Paul Greengard a Nobel Laureate at Rockefeller University> Last
month I visited the Fisher Foundation's laboratories and was so impressed by its staff and the work being carried out by them. There is no doubt about my encouraging all individuals I know to assist them in this endeavor.

The Fisher Center is devoted to Alzheimer's Research and is making progress in combatting this dreadful disease. When my mother-in-law became stricken with Alzheimer's, I started giving to The Fisher Center because of its commitment to research and extremely low overhead. When our son was preparing for his bar mitzvah, he chose to make The Fisher Center the focus of his mitzvah project. He asked for contributions at local businesses on behalf of The Fisher Center in honor of his grandmotherand raised $2,250.50 for the organization. We have continued to give to The Fisher Center over the years, and we see from updates provided to donors that The Fisher Center is coming closer to successful treatment of Alzheimer's.

I only recently learned about this organization. The research they perform is cutting edge, and they are significantly assisting people afflicted with Alzheimer's and their families. The materials they have available either directly from the organization or on their website are wonderful resources. You shouldn't be shy in contacting them for any assistance they may provide to you on the subject of Alzheimer's Disease.

Based on my research and the materials presented, this organization is quite competent and thorough.

I would only suggest that with additional funding, this organization could provide more extensive research and positive results.
