Matching gifts donations are welcome throughout the year as well as for the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimer’s® being held on Saturday, September 23rd at Weequahic Park in Newark and Sunday, October 15that Overpeck Park in Ridgefield Park. There is no fee to register. Participants fundraise by enlisting the support of their friends, family members, employers, co-workers and the greater community.  

“Making a donation is as easy as using the Alzheimer’s Association’s Gift Plus database,” said Tom Legan, Walk Manager. “This is a great way to gain the support of your company while multiplying the financial impact of your personal donation. It is a win-win for everyone involved, particularly those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia.”

Volunteers with the Greater New Jersey Chapter also are eligible for the Matching Gifts Program. Alternative employee-giving options include annual corporate giving, Community Health Charities, Combined Federal or United Way campaigns.

“One of our hallmark channels for giving includes the Alzheimer’s Association Workplace Champions Giving Program, which is mutually beneficial to the Greater New Jersey Chapter as well as employers and their employees,” added Legan. “The program provides fun and engaging activities for employees, educational presentations about Alzheimer’s disease, caregiver support and brain health awareness. This program can be extremely beneficial for those employees who are caregivers themselves.”
