Bankers Life and its parent, CNO Financial Group Inc., say they raised $369,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association this summer through their Forget Me Not Days fundraising campaign.
The money will go to help the Chicago-based association support dementia research, care for people with dementia, and support for caregivers.
Bankers Life is a Chicago-based life insurer that still writes some stand-alone long-term care insurance, along with life insurance, annuities, critical illness insurance, Medicare supplement insurance and other products.
The company has been raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association through the Forget Me Not Days campaign since 2003.
For this year’s campaign, 800 employees, agents and Alzheimer’s Association volunteers raised money in communities around the United States, and distributed 175,000 packets of Forget-Me-Not flower seeds. The volunteers asked the recipients to plant the seeds in honor of families that are facing, or that have faced, Alzheimer’s disease.
