Edward Jones boosts their support of the Alzheimer's Association through a five-year commitment totaling $25 million, effective January 2021. The commitment matches the $25 million already raised by Edward Jones, its associates and clients since launching in 2016. The $50 million investment spanning 10 years is the largest commitment received by the Alzheimer's Association from a corporate partnership.
Funding will continue to enhance the Alzheimer's Association's care and support programs, as well as provide educational materials for Edward Jones clients and associates through the 10 Warning Signs online education page and joint education seminars. The firm will advance public policy through their Alzheimer's Impact Movement corporate membership and continue to accelerate critical research.
Edward Jones will maintain their involvement with Walk to End Alzheimer’s as a national presenting sponsor and will engage their associates and clients through the Walk National Team program. More than 65,000 Edward Jones associates, clients, friends and families over the last four years participated on Edward Jones teams at more than 600 Alzheimer's walks held nationwide each year.
As the number of people affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia continues to grow, Edward Jones’ monumental commitment to the cause is crucial in funding research, supporting education, advancing access to care and broadening awareness of this disease.
