Providing Hope to Caregivers
If you are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, you are not alone.
The Windward Foundation, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter, has funded over 1,700 hours of individual and family care consultations for families traveling the difficult journey of Alzheimer’s disease.
Music has the power to take us to a time and place that we have long forgotten. The Windward Foundation proudly sponsors transformative music programs to enhance the quality of life on caregivers and their loved ones with Alzheimer’s.
Thank you to our 2018 line-up of Lucy Scholl, Leigh Nash, and Donna the Buffalo, and all of our donors, supporters, and sponsors – especially Clarabridge, Ernst & Young, and Windward Consulting! Stay tuned for news about our 2019 event!
How You Can Help Us
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are currently over 16.1 million people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. The physical and emotional stress to the caregiver can impact their own health and the cost of care can devastate a family. This is your opportunity to help ease the burden of caregiving of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. Your generous donation will help fund support for individual and family care consultations, music and art programs for caregivers and their loved ones with the disease, and other services and programs we support that directly impact caregivers.
Our primary funding comes from donations and the District Music Benefit, but we also know that together we can do so much more! From local events with live music, merchandise sales where a portion goes to the Windward Foundation, or running with Team Windward, there is always a way you can help! We are a proud Charity Partner of the Marine Corp Marathon 10k for 2018 and will provide the fundraising tools and guidance from start to finish. If you are interested in partnering with us or joining our fundraising teams and be an active part of the special work we are doing.
There are so many ways that you can support the mission of the Windward Foundation! From donating frequent flyer miles or items for our silent auction at the District Music Benefit, to purchasing a “hope” stone to help fund music programs for caregivers and their loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, please consider getting involved. Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year. It only takes a little bit of time to do a lot of good in the lives of those providing care to someone with Alzheimer’s. Please consider honoring someone that is a caregiver by giving your time and talents to the Windward Foundation.
