In 2004 I lost my dad to Alzheimer’s following a very ‘long goodbye.’ We formed the Spiritwood Foundation to help others on a similar journey. Our mission is to raise not only awareness regarding Alzheimer’s Disease, but also critical funds that support community organizations, programs, and facilities working with victims and families dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The Foundation has many different fund-raising tools. One of them is a musical ‘happening’ we wrote called Remember When - The Songs Of the 60s and 70s. We perform this show in communities around the country involving local performers and musicians. Our Foundation then gifts the profits to the community for its specific Alzheimer’s needs.

The Spiritwood ‘Forget Me Not’ Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization. All donations are tax-deductable. We are a completely volunteer organization, including the director and the board. Our office space and all utilities are donated by Spiritwood Music. Therefore, we are able to gift nearly every dollar we raise.
