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. The volunteering begins in October 2020 and goes through the end of August 2021.
