Virtual Fundraising Guide 

 During this time of social-distancing, fundraising to #endalz presents an opportunity for your community to join together virtually, while physically apart. Take your party, run, or golf outing virtual. Lead with why you are participating, pick a virtual fundraiser, follow best practices, utilize fundraising technology and achieve your fundraising goals.

 Please make all checks out to the Alzheimer's Association and mail them to the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter, 399 Market Street, Ste. 102, Philadelphia, PA 19106. Please make sure your name and/or team's name is on the memo line so we know where to allocate it.
