Directors of Non-Profit Development rake in the most money, with average earnings of $70K; Non-Profit Organization Program Coordinators come in second with typical earnings amounting to $57K, while Fundraising Managers and Special Events Managers rank near the top as well ($43K and approximately $41K, respectively). Event Coordinators at Alzheimer's Association do not see much in the way of financial compensation and represent one of the lower-paid positions (about $35K) at the company.


Median pay is highest in Santa Barbara (around $66K per year), followed by Irvine (about $57K), Fairfax ($48K), and Minneapolis ($43K). Expected earnings are below average ($38K) in Bentonville, one of the lowest-paid cities. Across its U.S. offices, the state of California pays Alzheimer's Association the most — approximately $57K annually on average.

Years of Experience

Survey participants who have worked at Alzheimer's Association for between five and ten years haul in around $44K on average. Overall, the greater share of Alzheimer's Association folks have one to four years of experience and earn $40K per year.

Certifications and Degrees

Those lacking certification bring in much lower salaries than Licensed Clinical Social Workers, who make $57K. Becoming a Licensed Social Worker can certainly pay off here; those folks make around $47K. Employees who have a master's in social work make the most here, hauling in approximately $56K annually.


In this role, the best-paying skill appears to be Budget Management; individuals who claim it among their capabilities enjoy a higher median salary of $65K. A garden variety skill at Alzheimer's Association is Fundraising; about one in three of Alzheimer's Association's people use it regularly. Some other standard skills here are Event Planning, Program Management, and Event Management.


Employees skew strongly female, with a female-to-male ratio of more than 3 to 1.

Benefits and Perks

The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only two-fifths of workers report compensation for sick days and vacation time. Those seeking to set aside retirement funds can rely on several savings options such as a 403(b) plan and a 401(k) plan. Alzheimer's Association provides health insurance to the greater part of workers, and a majority of workers do receive dental coverage. Employees can also look forward to a company cell phone, flexible hours, and a casual working environment.
