Take Action and Volunteer



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

AFTD offers a variety of opportunities to support and engage families, raise critical funds and awareness, and educate local communities. You can help by partaking in community awareness activities, facilitating support groups, or by hosting a grassroots event.

“I am honored by the trust others put in me when sharing their fears, challenges, and small victories. Volunteering for AFTD has given me the opportunity to pay it forward.”

– Marian Grems, AFTD Support Group Volunteer
