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 August 2020, cumulative NARFE donations to Alzheimer's Research is $13,602,119. This amount includes the money raised ($75,684) from the NARFE teams participating in the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer's ($74,881) and also donations received from the 2019 Longest Day ($803). Thanks to all of you for your fundraising efforts. We are working our way towards our goal of $14 million.
California Federation donations from our Chapters to Alzheimer's Research for the month of August was $105. The donations have been extremely low because Chapters are not meeting due to the pandemic. Please continue making your donations through your Chapter Alzheimer's Coordinator or Treasurer.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Due to the Coronavirus, the walks will be everywhere this year and not in a designated area as it has been in the past. You will walk in your neighborhoods with your team, friends and family to ensure social distancing. People have always been able to join a team and not physically walk. It would be a wonderful achievement if we could have a NARFE team represented at every scheduled walk!
The NARFE goal for the 2020 walks is $100,000. This is a great time to discuss your Chapter’s plan to participate in the 2020 walks. Teams can be registered at www.alz.org/narfewalks and donations can be made through December 2020.
NARFE members - please keep up the generous donations and continue contributing at your Chapter meetings! Thank you for your support.
