National Heart Foundation
The National Heart Foundation (NHF) was established in 1992 as a program of the American Health Assistance Foundation (AHAF). The Board of Directors of AHAF (since renamed BrightFocus Foundation) created the program to fund research and public education on heart disease and stroke. While the Board no longer actively raises funds for the NHF program, they continue to grant funds received via bequests to NHF to scientists conducting heart-related research thorough other programs – Alzheimer’s Disease Research, Macular Degeneration Research, and National Glaucoma Research.

Alzheimer's Family Relief Program
In recent years it became increasingly difficult to generate donor support for our Alzheimer's Family Relief Program (AFRP) that provided financial assistance to the families and caregivers of those with Alzheimer's disease.
Therefore, after much thought, the Board of Directors of the BrightFocus Foundation regretfully decided to close the program.
