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.
Chapter 1270 has consistently ranked in the top tier of fundraising chapters nationally and in the Virginia Federation of Chapters, and in 2014 was recognized as the Number One fundraiser in the Nation at the 33rd National NARFE Convention in Orlando, Fla.. This honor was achieved as the result of a lot of hard work by the entire chapter and through the presentation of its annual Fashion Show, Dining for Dollars, document shredding donation events, 50/50 drawings, and individual members' donations. In 2014 we raised over $15,800! We are now into our ninth year of the fundraising, and everyone is excited to see what is in store for the future. In the last ten years, Chapter 1270 has raised more than $100,000. Keep up the good work!
