Memorials and honoraria are a way for family and friends to celebrate the memory of a loved one or to honor those marking a special occasion. Acknowledgements for memorials and honoraria are made both to the contributor and to designated individuals; these individuals are also listed in the chapter's quarterly newsletter.
Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to support the Great Plains chapter's mission and services by designating a fixed amount to be deducted from each paycheck. If your workplace does not have an employee giving program, we can help you design one. If you do have such a program, please consider the Alzheimer's Association of the Great Plains as your designated charity. Many companies also have matching gift programs that can help maximize the value of their employee's gifts.
If your workplace participates in the Community Health Charities of Nebraska or United Way of Nebraska,
you can designate your pledge to the Alzheimer's Association of the Great Plains on your pledge card, or write in our name and address.
Your business or organization can receive recognition and visibility by sponsoring a special event of the chapter, either in whole or in part.
- The 2014 Stars are Out Gala will be held February 22, 2014 at the Cornhusker Hotel. This tradition has been a long-standing annual event in our community and raises tens of thousands of dollars to assist those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. To request tickets for the event or learn more about sponsorship opportunities, visit our Special Events page.
- Walk to End Alzheimer's, held in communities through the Great Plains Chapter during the summer and early fall months, provides an excellent opportunity for individual or team participation.
Planned gifts allow you to combine your charitable giving goals with your estate and financial planning needs. To help you meet your goals, the Alzheimer's Association offers a variety of arrangements, including annuities, trusts, and bequests.
- Planned Giving Guide, The Alzheimer's Association offers the Planned Giving Guide to provide detailed information on-line about our many planned giving opportunities, how planned giving can help you maintain financial independence through significant income and tax-saving benefits, and how planning the management and distribution of your assets during your lifetime and beyond helps ensure your participation in the fulfillment of our mission to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
