Development - Report  

As our fiscal year comes to a close, we are diligently working to ensure that we have a strong financial footing to start FY11.

As of this writing, our Mothers Day and Fathers Day Tribute program has shown a 60% increase over 2009. We have also had a full events calendar this quarter as reflected by the pictures on both sides of this page. Our events have ranged from a book signing at The Friars Club, to our very first Spring Tea, to our annual “Forget-Me-Not” Gala, which this year was chaired by Frank J. Bisignano, CAO of JPMorgan Chase, and raised $1.1 million.

Please be sure to review the “Ways to Give” column and our policy regarding donations and those that are shared with our National Association. And pay careful attention to “Know Your Charity.” There are many charities that have the word Alzheimer’s in their name. Please be sure that you are supporting us. Below is a list of organizations that are not affiliated with the Association.

Thank you for your help in making the Chapter a life-saving resource for so many New Yorkers who need a place to turn in time of need. We could not do our work without you. Please contact me at
