Through a partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association in Chicago, IL, 100 percent of NARFE-member donations go to Alzheimer’s research.
The NARFE-Alzheimer’s National Committee, made up of one member from each of the NARFE’s ten regions, meet each year. With the help of experts from the Alzheimer’s Association, the Committee selects the research projects to fund.
NARFE has funded 89 projects since 1985. By virtue of its contributions to Alzheimer’s research, NARFE is a member of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Zenith Society, which represents the Alzheimer’s Association’s “highest and most involved” level of donors.
As of the end of July, the NARFE fundraising total was $15,869,922. This amount includes the Longest Day totals and the Walk to End Alzheimer’s for 2022. The total amount includes the money raised ($78,610) from the NARFE teams participating in the 2022 Walk to End Alzheimer’s and the donations received ($2,625) from the Longest Day in 2022. Also, planned gifts received in FY 2023 in the amount of $859,137 were posted. The planned gifts amount will be updated monthly as more gifts are received throughout the year. During the month of July, our members raised a total of $12,696, down $5,316 from donations received in July 2022. The amount raised by Region VIII in FY 2024 is $0 which is down $794 from the same reporting period in FY 2023.
Fiscal Year 2023 covers the period July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023.
The new fundraising goal is $16 million by December 2025.
California Federation donations from our Chapters to NARFE - Alzheimer's Research for the month of April were $603.
