For 35 years, AFAR has worked to extend healthspan, the amount of time we are in optimal health as we age.
To improve healthspan, AFAR supports solid science to better understand the biology of aging and how common diseases are influenced by the processes of aging in our bodies.
Likewise, your support provides a solid foundation for AFAR to fortify a network of scientists and clinicians across the country whose research will help us remain healthier as we grow older.
Together, your donation and our investigators are strengthening the research pipeline today that will move discoveries from the lab to
our lives tomorrow.
For sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, AFAR's accomplishments and low administrative expenses have secured the highest rating from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of the nation's charities.
"AFAR's coveted 4-star rating puts it in a very select group of high-performing charities,” according to Tim Gamory, COO of Charity Navigator. “Out of the thousands of nonprofits Charity Navigator evaluates, only one out of four earns 4 stars -- a rating that demands rigor, responsibility and commitment to openness. AFAR's supporters should feel much more confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly given such a high rating."
