In November 2019, CVS Health joined the Alzheimer’s Association in the fight to end Alzheimer’s as a new national corporate partner. CVS Health made a three-year, $10 million minimum commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association, including customer fundraising, caregiver support and National Presenting Sponsorship of Walk to End Alzheimer’s. CVS Health and the Alzheimer’s Association launched this new partnership through an in-store fundraising campaign at CVS Pharmacy, and Walk National Presenting Sponsorship, which began with the 2020 Walk season.
CVS Health is the largest healthcare innovation company in the United States, with integrated offerings across the spectrum of pharmacy care. CVS Health has more than 300,000 colleagues across all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
About the customer fundraisers
In November 2019, to correspond with National Family Caregivers Month, CVS Health launched a three-week in-store fundraising campaign at its more than 8,800 CVS Pharmacy locations. This year's fundraising campaign offers customers the option to round up their transaction to the nearest dollar to donate to the Association. Additionally, CVS Pharmacy will donate 20% of sales of World's Finest Chocolate through Dec. 24, 2020, up to $100,000.
About the commitment to caregiver support
CVS Health is committed to helping families facing Alzheimer's and other dementias by connecting customers with Alzheimer’s Association care and support resources. This will be a year-round effort, including development of a new caregiver education program for in-person and online delivery.
About the sponsorship of Walk to End Alzheimer's
Starting with the 2020 Walk season, CVS Health joined Edward Jones as the second National Presenting Sponsor of the Walk to End Alzheimer's. CVS Health also participated in the Walk National Team Program.
