Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust (CART)
Imagine…Imagine a world without Alzheimer’s Disease. That is the ultimate goal of Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust, CART.
CART’s new Executive Director, Tiffany Ervin, speaks often of The Power of One. Cart began 30 years ago with an idea of one Rotarian, Roger Ackerman, in one club, the Rotary Club of Sumter, SC. The idea was for Rotarians to donate pocket change at each meeting, and 100% of the money would be donated to cutting-edge Alzheimer’s research. That is still the commitment of CART.
The idea of CART spread until in 2022 there are 23 participating Rotary Districts with 960 clubs. As of May, 2022, CART has awarded 64 research grants totaling more than $11 million.
In 2020 the new CART Online Contribution Portal went online. All CART Contributions, whether from clubs or individuals, are to be sent through the portal. It can be found at mycartfund.org. Rotarians may log in with Dacdb credentials. Instructions are on the website, as well as a link for support.
District 6920 is a major contributor to CART. During the 2021-2022 awards year 40 clubs contributed a total of $64,778.00. All 61 clubs are encouraged to participate. Thank you District 6920 Rotarians for your faithful and consistent support of CART.
