Hello there! Welcome to Pilot's CrowdRise page supporting the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) - one of the six non-profit organizations we've chosen to focus on this giving season!
An estimated 5.5 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's disease and The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA) mission is to provide optimal care and services to individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses, as well as to their families and caregivers.
AFA has grown to a network of more than 2,600 member organizations nationwide that provide direct care and services. To date, AFA has trained more than 13,000 healthcare professionals in dementia-specific care, provided free, confidential memory screenings to nearly 3.5 million people, and provides support, counseling and education to thousands. Learn more about their work here.
That brings us to the brass tacks - we've set a goal of raising $4,000 for each of the NPOs on our list, and we need your help to meet (and hopefully surpass) this number!
It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. There are bills to pay, parties to attend, gifts to buy and Black Friday deals to nab! But we're hoping this #GivingTuesday campaign resonates with our friends and family as an opportunity to connect with the true spirit of the holidays - one that's centered around generosity, humility, compassion, and kindness.
Thanks for stopping by our page and supporting the great work the Alzheimer's Foundation of America is doing in NYC!
