...   Finance & Accountability


Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-EZ, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $200,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

...   Impact & Results


Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

Our mission to to bring awareness of Lewy Body Dementia to health care professionals and the general public so that early diagnosis can be made, misdiagnosis can be avoided, and wrong medications are not given. The second part of our mission is to help family members who are caring for a person with LBD in every way we can. LBD is a complicated disease with a multitude of symptoms and caregivers have no place else to turn for resources and live help.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

Bringing crucial awareness requires us to: 1. Have speaking engagements at health care facilities, senior centers, medical schools, home health care agencies 2. Provide information on our website 3. Use social media 4. Have support groups 5. Have a help line 6. Connect with other dementia and Parkinson's organizations


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

1. We are able to speak wherever we are requested. On our own, we have volunteers who regularly set up speaking engagements at the many hospitals and health care facilities, home health care agencies, etc. who are welcoming us to speak. 2. We have a comprehensive website that provides information on every aspect of the disease in addition to information on caregiving and alternative therapies for anyone with any disease. 3. We have social media accounts and are posting on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter on a regular basis. 4. We have four different monthly supports. 5. We have the only live helpline in the United States for families of people with LBD. It is available 7 days per week, 12 hours per day. 6. We regularly meet with representatives of other organizations that serve people with brain diseases and movement disorders.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

1. We are keeping logs of all speaking engagements, which have been increasing steadily. 2. Our web developer is keeping track of the traffic to our website. 3. Our followers and friends on social media have increased on a regular basis and are easy to track on the individual platforms. 4. The attendance at our support groups has increased and we keep a list of those in attendance. 5. We keep a log of all phone calls to our live helpline. Calls have continued to increase. 6. More people are now contacting us to meet with them, instead of vice versa, so we know we are making progress is being known.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

Our number of speaking engagements has increased steadily and we intend to add additional ones each month. 2. Our web developer has kept track of traffic to our website and has seen an increase from the previous year. We will be adding more content and having our Newsletters and social media direct more traffic to our site. 3. Our followers and friends on social media have increased on a regular basis and are easy to track on the individual platforms. Our intention is to post more often and to have the link to our website posted on other like-minded facebook pages. 4. The attendance at our support groups has increased. We now intend to announce/advertise their existence in their respective locations to have even more attendees. 5. Calls on our live helpline continue to increase. We already have other experienced LBD caregivers ready to step in and take calls if the need arises. 6. More people are now contacting us to meet with them. Collaborating with some of these organizations is our next step.
