Please join us at one of our many special events to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter! We’d like to extend a special thank you to those who have chosen our organization as the beneficiary of their fundraising efforts. We look forward to putting the funds you raise to good use in working towards our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.



Forget Me Not Days 

Help us plant the seeds of hope! On June 2-3, 2017, visit your local Bankers Life office or look for them in your community as they collect donations and raise awareness for the Alzheimer's Association. On June 9-10, 2017, join our volunteers in the Chicagoland area as they collect donations and raise awareness at their local Jewel-Osco stores, popular intersections, and local businesses. In exchange for a donation, you'll receive packets of Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to plant in honor of a loved one and the more than five million Americans living with Alzheimer's. What started as a grassroots fundraiser has blossomed into a national campaign, raising more than $4.5 million for the Alzheimer's Association. Register or donate today!

Point of Purchase Program

Each year, thousands of paper pin-up flowers are sold in local stores, restaurants, banks and other businesses across the country to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s. At the point of purchase, tellers, waitresses and cashiers offer the flowers to patrons in exchange for a donation. The business then displays all of the flowers sold to create a community-driven awareness display in the store.

Our Point of Purchase Program is a free and easy campaign for your business to enhance its reputation as a charitable leader and fulfill its social responsibility in the community. Interested in participating? Register your business today!

Casual for a Cause

In the Casual for a Cause program, a company encourages its employees to dress down or wear jeans for a day (or more) in exchange for a small donation (usually $5) to the Alzheimer's Association. We can provide you with a sticker (or you can use your own) to be given to each employee that pays the donation to dress down. By wearing our sticker that day, employees display their commitment to the cause. Register today!
