THE ANNUAL FUND
Why An Annual Fund?
In 2006, Coach Broyles’ family struggled with his wife Barbara’s Alzheimer’s Dementia diagnosis. Immediately, Coach discovered there were very few support services for dementia caregivers. In response to his own experiences, Coach created the Frank and Barbara Broyles Legacy Foundation to support other Alzheimer’s Caregivers.
Coach Broyles believed that caregiver support should never be a financial burden. As such, the Broyles Foundation is a 100% donor-funded nonprofit: every dollar you give goes directly to our programs and services.
The number of families that rely on the Broyles Foundation grows every year. Your Annual Fund donation will help the Broyles Foundation expand its support network while maintaining Coach’s desire that support should never be a financial burden.
Our Impact, 2019-2022
Though terminal, Alzheimer’s is rarely a rapid disease, and many diagnoses last for the better part of a decade. In a care-giving situation, financial and personal planning must be viewed as a shift in lifestyle, not an emergency.
Unfortunately, many caregivers cannot anticipate nor adequately prepare for the costs or stresses of being a caregiver. We’ve been there, and we can help create a Game Plan to navigate these crises.
Supporting our Annual Fund directly benefits the following caregiver-oriented programs, allowing us to create game plans at no cost to caregivers or their families.
Why We Need Your Help
Financial and personal planning are the two largest sources of long-term stress for caregivers
Over 5.8 million Americans over the age of 65 are living with Alzheimer’s, and the number is increasing rapidly. Every 65 seconds another person develops the disease in the United States. For most families, a dementia diagnosis is more than just a terminal illness: it is an abrupt end to a planned future for retirement and financial independence.
