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 83 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 August 2021, cumulative NARFE donations to Alzheimer's Research is $13,961,552.  This amount includes the money raised ($65,749) from the NARFE teams participating in the 2020 Walk to End Alzheimer's and donations received ($3,780) from the Longest Day in 2020.  

Thanks to all of you for your fundraising efforts.  Our national goal of $14 million has been extended to December 31, 2022, due to the COVID-19 virus and that many of the chapters are not currently meeting.  This was decided at the NARFE Alzheimer’s National Committee Annual Meeting in September 2020.

California Federation donations from our Chapters to Alzheimer's Research for the month of August was $675.

The donations have significantly decreased because chapters are not meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please continue to donate by sending your contribution to your Chapter Alzheimer’s Coordinator or Treasurer.  Donations can also be made on-line at   The form in the NARFE Magazine can also be used.  Your Federation and Chapter Numbers need to be added to ensure that your chapter receives credit. 

Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
