Support the Broyles Foundation & Award by donating to our Annual Fund!​

Why An Annual Fund?

In 2006, Coach Broyles’ family struggled with his wife Barbara’s Alzheimer’s Dementia diagnosis. Immediately, Coach discovered there were very few support services for dementia caregivers. In response to his own experiences, Coach created the Frank and Barbara Broyles Legacy Foundation to support other Alzheimer’s Caregivers.

Coach Broyles believed that caregiver support should never be a financial burden. As such, the Broyles Foundation is a 100% donor-funded nonprofit: every dollar you give goes directly to our programs and services.

The number of families that rely on the Broyles Foundation grows every year. Your Annual Fund donation will help the Broyles Foundation expand its support network while maintaining Coach’s desire that support should never be a financial burden.

The Broyles Award Annual Fund supports a different kind of game plan altogether – one for Alzheimer’s caregivers and their families at a most critical time of need. As the proud grandson of Martha Gattis – who tragically passed from Alzheimer’s in 2010, and someone who impacted my life in ways too numerous to count – my role in serving as a voice for the Broyles Award Annual Fund and to further the work of the Frank and Barbara Broyles Legacy Foundation means more to me than any personal acknowledgement or award ever could.

Our Impact, 2019-Present

Our Mission

Though terminal, Alzheimer’s is rarely a rapid disease, and many diagnoses last for the better part of a decade. In a care-giving situation, financial and personal planning must be viewed as a shift in lifestyle, not an emergency.

Unfortunately, many caregivers cannot anticipate nor adequately prepare for the costs or stresses of being a caregiver. We’ve been there, and we can help create a Game Plan to navigate these crises.

Supporting our Annual Fund directly benefits the following caregiver-oriented programs, allowing us to create game plans at no cost to caregivers or their families.

Coach’s Playbook, 2nd Edition

This publication would provide updated caregiver strategies and new sections written by caregivers and healthcare experts, and would be available in an eBook format.

Why We Need Your Help

Financial and personal planning are the two largest sources of long-term stress for caregivers

Over 5.8 million Americans over the age of 65 are living with Alzheimer’s, and the number is increasing rapidly. Every 65 seconds another person develops the disease in the United States. For most families, a dementia diagnosis is more than just a terminal illness: it is an abrupt end to a planned future for retirement and financial independence.

"Receiving the Broyles Award in 2018 will go down as one of the top honors that this family has and will ever receive. The recognition for the on-field accomplishments is just a small part of why this award is so special to us. Having our family's name tied to an organization that champions making an impact in the community is what makes the Broyles Award so special. The Broyles Foundation continues to make a meaningful impact in the world with their tireless efforts in Alzheimer’s caregiving. Coach Frank Broyles defined what being the ultimate humanitarian was. He earned the respect of everyone that he encountered and touched the lives of so many.”
