American Heart Association
- Nonprofit Organizations
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, our organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters. We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide critical tools and information to save and improve lives. Our nationwide organization includes 156 local offices and more than 3,000 employees. We moved our national headquarters from New York to Dallas in 1975 to be more centrally located. The American Stroke Association was created as a division in 1997 to bring together the organization’s stroke-related activities.
Heart Ball is one of the premier American Heart Association fundraising events both locally and across the nation. Our evening celebrates the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s countless efforts.
This event promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion, bringing community and philanthropic leaders together.
By attending, you have the opportunity to become a critical part of our mission.
