Alzheimer's Association Greater Indiana Chapter

The Alzheimer's Association of Greater Indiana is looking for volunteers to help us with our national signature event - the Longest Day.

The Longest Day is a choose your own adventure fundraiser. We help individuals identify a hobby or activity they love (or an activity their loved one enjoyed) and turn into a fundraiser. The funds we raise helps provide Alzheimer's and dementia care, support and research!

From running, playing cards, barbeques and more individuals get excited about how creative their event can be. Individuals, families, small business or even companies can use their interests or hobbies to help raise funds for the Alzheimer's Association.

Description

In 1982, the Alzheimer’s Association and Related Disorders Organization was established in cooperation with Community Hospitals, Indianapolis to support patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The Chapter affiliated with the National Association in 1988 and became the Alzheimer’s Association - Central Indiana Chapter. By the year 2000, 37 counties in central Indiana were served by the Chapter.

Meanwhile, in 1986, the South Central Indiana Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association was incorporated. Located in Columbus, Indiana, the South Central Chapter originally served five counties. By the year 2000, their service area had grown to 14 counties.

In the year 2000, these two chapters merged to form the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Indiana. In 2003, the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Indiana merged with the Ft. Wayne Alzheimer’s Support Groups to form the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Indiana. With the merger, the Association expanded it’s territory to include Northern Indiana and opened an office in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

The Association is administered by a voluntary Board of Directors and a staff of 25. Over 550 volunteers are also utilized to provide support and education programs to the Association’s 73 counties.
