As key stakeholders in the Alzheimer's Association, Zenith Society members play an active and guiding role in the stewardship of their investment and regularly engage with distinguished leaders in the Alzheimer's research field and with senior staff and voluntary leadership at the Association. The Alzheimer's Association's exceptional vision and global connectivity enable Zenith Society members to leverage their gift to achieve the greatest impact on the area in which they invest.
Additionally, Zenith Society members are involved in the Alzheimer's Association as ambassadors, advocates and volunteers. Many of them serve in leadership roles, assuming positions on both local and national boards. As philanthropic visionaries, their opinions, experiences and knowledge are invaluable in the planning of the Association's strategy and growth.
Whether choosing new avenues of scientific inquiry, reviewing progress reports of ongoing studies, examining issues of policy and mission or encouraging new membership, the Zenith Society is a model of philanthropic leadership that is working to drastically change the course of one of the most baffling and devastating diseases of our time.
Zenith Society Members not only have the ability to make a real, tangible difference in the fight against Alzheimer's disease today — they have the ability to change the future of the disease for those who will be affected tomorrow. The Alzheimer's Association is so grateful to these donors, who exemplify and elevate charitable giving and involvement. I invite anyone who shares the passion of these donors to learn what it means to be a Zenith Society member.
