Rotarians in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and some areas of Texas and Kentucky are the sponsors of The CART Fund (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) dedicated to raising funds to provide the “seed” money for cutting edge, high impact research in hopes of finding a cure/prevention for Alzheimer’s disease.

In order to accomplish this, Rotarians are encouraged to voluntarily empty their pockets of change, or what ever amount they choose, whenever they attend a Rotary meeting.
