The Alzheimer's Association is the nation's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Bankers is a proud national sponsor of the Alzheimer's Association and supports its vision for a world without Alzheimer's.
For 10 years running, we have organized Bankers Life and Casualty Company's Forget Me Not Days®, our nationwide fundraising campaign to collect donations for the Alzheimer's Association and raise public awareness of the disease. Since 2003, Bankers has helped raise more than $2.9 million for the Association through the fundraiser and corporate donations.
