Alzheimer's Fundraising Procedures
The process for Chapters to participate is simple:
1. Raise Funds for Alzheimer's:
Chapter raises funds by fundraisers, individual donations, coin collections, raffles, etc.
When making or accepting donations it is important that our members know that their contributions to Alzheimer's research can be tax-deductible if their check is made payable to NARFE/Alzheimer's but only if they itemize their deductions. Our members should also know that 100% of all funds donated to NARFE/Alzheimer's goes toward much needed research.
The Chapter Alzheimer's Coordinator or Chapter Treasurer records:
b. address and
c. amount of each donation
d. check number (please do not send cash)
The above information is needed to be able to acknowledge donations. Without this information the individual donor's identity is lost and his donation cannot be acknowledged. Be aware that if checks are lost in the mail without knowing who donated funds, it would be hard to identify the donor to arrange a new check. Accordingly the Chapter should keep a copy of the list. If all donations are by check and include a name and address a list need not be forwarded. However, for a Memorial Donation be sure the name of the person to be remembered and the name and address of the family is noted so that a memorial acknowledgement can be sent to the family.
3. Forward Funds
The Chapter Treasurer or Chapter Alzheimer's Coordinator sends the checks to:
Please call Bette Krausif you have any questions, at 281-499-8277 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

4. TFC Alzheimer's Coordinator Actions
The TFC Alzheimer's Coordinator will record donations received from Chapters so that the Chapter receives credit for the donation. Once a month donations received by the TFC Alzheimer's Coordinator will be forwarded to the Alzheimer's Association in Chicago IL in special salmon-colored, pre-addressed envelopes provided by that Association. The TFC Alzheimer's Coordinator will see that the checks forwarded to the Chicago office contain a name and address so that an acknowledgment letter can be sent to the contributor. When notified that a memorial contribution has been made to NARFE/Alzheimer's Disease Research, and an address for the family of the individual being remembered is provided, the TFC Alzheimer's Coordinator will send out a memorial acknowledgment card. Every two years at the state federation convention the TFC Alzheimer's Coordinator reports the total amount of money contributed by Texas NARFE Chapters during the past two years.
