Coffee Break

Campaign runs: August to January (host your event any day!)

Coffee Break® has been one of the Alzheimer Society's biggest annual fundraisers for over 20 years, where friends, co-workers, and customers gather in communities across Canada to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Participants at the event make a donation in exchange for a cup of coffee.

Did you know that the amount you spend on your daily cup of coffee has the ability to have a positive impact on the people with Alzheimer's Disease and dementia in our community? Make your coffee count today!

How does Coffee Break® work?  There are many ways to get involved! 
  • Be a Coffee Break Ambassador - and set up a Coffee Break at your workplace, office, etc.
  • Host a Coffee Break or other fundraiser at home or in the community (school, church, clubs, etc.) 
  • Sell Coffee Break Decals 
  • Make a donation directly

You can become a Coffee Break® host! 

Coffee Break events are held in homes, offices, community centers, schools, churches, city halls, retail outlets, and health facilities - just about anywhere coffee can be served and a donation collected. Over the years, Coffee Break® hosts have become very creative in their fundraising efforts, hosting BBQs, parties and even community challenges. Small or large, simple or elaborate, each break truly makes a difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Another way to help raise funds is to purchase coffee cup cut-outs at a local participating stores. Individuals can write their name on the cut-out and then the store will display it. Bulk Barn is an avid participant in selling these cut-outs, raising thousands of dollars for the Society locally.

Don't have time to host a Coffee Break® in person? You can still support your local Coffee Break® with an online donation. Simply click here and choose Coffee Break® from the list of Fund/Designations.

How can my retail business take part?

It’s simple – ask for a Coffee Cup cut-out kit when you register.

This complimentary kit includes Coffee Break® cut-outs to help raise funds and awareness. Just add the cut-out UPC code to your inventory, and invite your customers to add a donation to their purchase. Your customers can personalize their cut-out, and you may choose to display them in your store, which raises even more awareness! When you are finished, tally up your total and send your donation in.
