This event was started by our grandfather, Richard “Dick” Basiliere, in 1999 as a way for some retired IBMers to stay in touch with each other. The Alzheimer’s Association was then chosen as a beneficiary of their donations. Since that time, over $75,000 has been raised and donated to the Vermont Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. While this is an amazing contribution, there is still much work to be done.
About the Alzheimer’s Association
The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s disease care, support and research. We provide services to those affected by Alzheimer’s, advocate for policy change and scientific funding, and advance research toward prevention, treatment and, ultimately, a cure. We work nationwide to serve the needs of those affected by Alzheimer’s today and globally to eliminate the impact of the disease tomorrow.
A donor-supported organization, the Alzheimer’s Association allocates its funds in an ethical and responsible manner that exceeds the rigorous standards of America’s most experienced charity evaluator, the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance. The Association also holds a National Charity Seal from the Alliance.
We are especially grateful to those who helped us advance our mission in fiscal year 2016 by making contributions. Total revenues equaled $177.8 million for the national organization and $316.5 million organization-wide.
To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
