Alzheimer's Association Mission: To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.

Our Vision: A world without Alzheimer's disease.

We are looking for passionate committee members for The Longest Day (TLD), our annual "do-it-yourself" fundraising program! Shine a light with us to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

The volunteer's role for TLD includes all or some of the following: attending monthly committee meetings (currently virtual), making phone calls to participants, writing thank you cards, reaching out to your network and making connections, assisting with marketing of events, participating on the TLD social media pages, fundraising etc. Your Alzheimer's Association staff partner supports you throughout the program and is very flexible and happy to tailor your volunteer experience around your interests and schedule. We are currently 100% remote.

Ideal volunteers would have some of these traits: Enjoy connecting with people, passionate about ending Alzheimer's, enthusiastic, creative, comfortable talking on the phone and a willingness to participate in or co-host events.

Monthly commitment: Approximately 4-5 hours per month. This will vary depending on the month, and as mentioned above, our staff partner is very flexible with what works for you. While TLD is on June 20th, we like working with volunteers year round.

Description

The Alzheimer’s Association was founded by individuals like you who saw the need for an organization to unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s and advance research. More than 30 years later, the Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

Our volunteers have been, and continue to be, critical to expanding our reach across communities nationwide to provide care and support to those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. By working together, we are moving closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
