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 85 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 November, the NARFE fundraising total was $14,137,650. 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. The new fundraising goal for research is $15 million by December 2024.
