The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, Inc., a 501(c) (3) nonprofit educational organization, was established in 1947 to dispel the mounting belief among our nation's youth that the American Dream was no longer attainable.
The Association is governed by a Board of Directors composed solely of Association’s Members. The Board is elected by the full membership to serve five-year terms. Directors appointed as Officers and Members-At-Large serve on the Board’s Executive Committee.
The Association strives to increase public awareness about its missions and programs and to honor the stories of its Members and Scholars.
