Since 1985, NARFE members have played a major role in
seeking a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Through its partnership
with the National
Alzheimer’s Association, NARFE supports research into the
cause, prevention, and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as well
as a cure for Alzheimer’s and related disorders. Public education
on the need for research – our only tool for conquering the disease
– also is an important focus. NARFE Chapter 1270 is proud of its
support for this worthy cause and strives to provide its members opportunities
to make a difference.
In collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association, NARFE members have donated more than $10 million to the NARFE Alzheimer’s Fund. 100 percent of NARFE donations to the Fund are allocated to research. NARFE is a member of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Zenith Society, a group of about 50 donors representing the highest level of giving. NARFE is one of only four organizations belonging to the Zenith Society and, of the four organizations, NARFE is the “number one” contributor.
Congratulations to Chapter 1270 and Felice Pearl for the chapter's great work in fund raising for Alzheimer's research. Since 2004 our Chapter has raised over $70,000 for Alzheimer’s research and has been recognized consistently since 2009, both state-wide and nationally, for its fundraising prowess. Our major source of fund raising has been from its annual fashion show, 50/50 raffles at our meetings and events, bake sales, dining events at local restaurants, and donations made at document shredding events. Another major source of funds is through the generosity of our members, who make individual donations for Alzheimer’s through our Chapter.
