Development - Report  

To begin this report, I am delighted to thank the supporters of our 2010 Year-End Campaign, which generated $365,760 from 1,160 donors. Donations ranged from a few dollars to more than $25,000. We are most fortunate by this response from both new friends and longstanding supporters. It is your generosity, regardless of donation size, that makes our work possible and helps us to build a solid foundation from which to grow.

I also wish to recognize The Helen Hoffritz Charitable Trust for supporting our Emergency & Special Assistance Fund. Our care consultants are able to make immediate grants to families in financial crisis because of this fund. The Charles and Mildred Schnurmacher Foundation, Inc. is helping to ensure that the Chapter sustains its quality programs. And we are indeed pleased to welcome Janssen Alzheimerís Immunotherapy Program as a new sponsor of our Early Stage Forum. As many of you know, the Chapter is a recognized leader in programs for people with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), earlystage Alzheimerís disease and other types of dementia.

I hope on your next visit to the Chapter you will take time to read the names on our Donor Wall which represents the foundations, corporations and individual donors who have supported the Chapter with gifts of $10,000 and over. Philanthropic support accounts for 98 percent of our revenue.

And please read and respond to our Motherís Day and Fatherís Day Tribute Program appeal on page 19. With so many city, state and federal budget cuts, more and more individuals and families are depending upon us. You make the difference in the Chapterís ability to sustain and grow vital programs and services. We could not do our work without you. Please contact me at (646) 744-2905 or if you have questions or would like any further information.

Thank you.
