Your support matters. Currently, as many as 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease; even more are faced with the challenges of caring for a loved one with the disease. Our organization builds intergenerational friendships between students and those living with Alzheimer’s disease, which we hope are productive for those with Alzheimer’s, students, family, and caregivers alike. As we expand to new universities, and continue to expand at Harvard College, we require funding for transportation and other operational costs. We rely on the generous support of Harvard funding sources, and outside funding sources, to continue to make visits to our buddies. Only $25 covers the transportation costs for 24 volunteers to make one of our weekly buddy visits.
