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 78 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 January 2020, cumulative NARFE donations to Alzheimer's Research is $13,478,455. This amount includes the money raised ($74,881) from the NARFE teams participating in the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer's and also donations received from the Longest Day. Thanks to all of you for your fundraising efforts. We are working our way towards our new goal of $14 million by the end of 2020.
California Federation donations from our Chapters to Alzheimer's Research for the month of January was $1,817.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The NARFE goal for the 2019 walks was $100,000 of which $74,581 was raised. Over the past four years, NARFE members nationwide have raised over $300,000 for the Walk. Congratulations to the Team NARFE CA Federation for raising $2,371 for the walk placing the team in 7thplace nationwide. This would be a great time to discuss your Chapter’s plan to participate in the 2020 walks. Teams can be registered at alz.org/narfewalks and donations can be made January through December 2020.
Alzheimer’s Stamp. A Bill is before Congress to extend the Alzheimer’s Semi-Postal Stamp for another six years. The Semi-Postal Stamps issued only have a limited release of two years. The Alzheimer’s Stamp was issued on November 30, 2017 and not only raises awareness, it also raises much needed funds for dementia research. Please make telephone calls, write letters and make office visits to your Senators and House Representatives requesting that they support the extension of this stamp.
NARFE members - please keep up the generous donations and continue contributing at your Chapter meetings! Thank you for your support.
