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! Help us fight the darkness of Alzheimer's and all other dementia by doing some you love and tacking on a fundraising component to it!

The volunteer's role for TLD includes all or some of the following: attending monthly committee meetings (currently virtual), brainstorming fundraising ideas for over 300 Illinois fundraisers, making phone calls to participants, writing thank you cards, reaching out to your network and making connections, assisting with marketing of events, participating and sharing the TLD social media pages with your networks, fundraising on your own, 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, strong network in Illinois, comfortable talking on the phone and a willingness to participate in or co-host events.

Monthly commitment: Approximately 3-4 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. Volunteering begins in November 2021 and goes through the end of August 2022.
