Volunteer With Us

Throughout the U.S., AFTD volunteers donate their time and their talents to make the journey easier for the next family. Our volunteers truly understand the daily realities of FTD—the challenges, the setbacks, even the small triumphs. They are our community’s boots on the ground, delivering support, spreading awareness, and making a difference for others affected by FTD.

How You Can Help

Raise awareness by representing AFTD at local events, connecting with others affected by FTD at informal gatherings, and talking with local media outlets about FTD and AFTD.

Organize and facilitate an in-person or virtual FTD caregiver support group.

Participate in one of AFTD's established fundraising events, or hold an independent event of your own. Learn more about hosting your own event to help support our mission!
