NARFE November
We are thrilled to announce this December, the Alzheimer's Association will be running a direct mail and email campaign challenging individuals across the United States to match NARFE members' generous $1 million pledge in the fight against Alzheimer's disease and all dementia.

This is a great opportunity to raise awareness for NARFE, as people across the country will be exposed to the NARFE brand and mission of protecting federal pay and benefits, and our dedication to accelerating research to create a future without Alzheimer's disease. Through a series of communications, millions will have exposure to the NARFE/Alzheimer's website (, which also includes a link to NARFE's website.

We are so thankful for NARFE's incredible pledge to raise $1 million and we are excited to continue our partnership and shared dedication to finding a cure for this devastating disease. Funds raised through this $1 million match campaign are separate from the funds NARFE members raise and will not count toward NARFE members' pledge to raise $1 million.
