Workplace Giving

Make the Difference with Donor Choice

The Alzheimer's Association is part of Community Health Charities, a coalition of 30 local and 65 national voluntary health agencies that has partnered with United Way. The Alzheimer's Association receives only donor designated contributions made by people like you on your Donor Choice Card.

Here's how you can help the Alzheimer's Association receive funding through Donor Choice:

  1. Contact the United Way campaign coordinator at your workplace - NOW! Encourage him/her to request an Alzheimer's Association speaker for your campaign, and be sure they have an ample supply of Donor Choice cards. If your place of business does not currently participate in United Way, ask to include Community Health Charities in your employee giving campaign.

  2. Become familiar with the Donor Choice Card. Ask your employer for a Donor Choice Card and locate the line that looks like this:

    Write in the number for the Alzheimer's Association listed on the Donor Choice Card. Only dollars designated with the Alzheimer's Association agency code will reach the Heart of America Chapter.

  3. Redesignate your gift each year. You must complete the United Way Pledge Card and the Donor Choice Card every year.
