    Together, We Can End Alzheimer’s

    Nov 16, 2018

    Right now 5.7 million American are living with Alzheimer’s disease—a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia. The disease is the 6th leading cause of death in US and claims more victims than breast and prostate cancer combined.  By 2050, 14 million Americans will likely suffer from this disease. 

    KeyPoint supports the Alzheimer's Association mission to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected.  Last Fall, many of the employees of KeyPoint participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s fundraising event.  Now, during this holiday season, when you use your KeyPoint Debit Card, 1% of the card fees will be donated to the Association.  If every KeyPoint member used their debit card just two or more extra times a month, we’d reach our goal of $10,000! 

    So use your KeyPoint debit card for all your holiday shopping.  And if you do not have a KeyPoint checking account, open one now and help us fight this terrible disease that affects so many Americans.

    *From November 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018, KeyPoint will donate up to 1% of its debit card interchange fees to the Alzheimer’s Association.  Minimum donation will be $3,000 and the maximum donation will be $10,000.
