The Fireball Foundation was founded in loving memory of Glenn E. Bolyard, or Fireball as he was known by close friends. He passed away in January of 2005 after a long battle with Dementia.
Our founders believe that not enough reliable resources dedicated to providing unbiased information to care givers and those who love people with dementia exist today. Our current priorities for the next five years are nursing home quality, home care options, legal rights of carers and nutrition.
Our core strategy will be to seek meaningful partnerships with other organizations by providing funding or professional assistance in planning or execution of the project. We’ll only originate a program if we find no meaningful partnerships available.
The board of directors and those involved with our organization are very excited by the progress we have made over the last year and look forward to starting to see our vision become a reality. 2010 will see two programs launch for the foundation:
- The launch of Fireball Village – an online community for care givers and those who love people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and
- The Foundations first financial grants to worthy recipients.
Please feel free to contact us for additional information or to get involved in the charity. Our email address is Info [at] FireballFoundation [dot] org.
The Fireball Foundation is incorporated in West Virginia, USA and is a recognized 501 c3 organization.
