What is Anything for Alzheimer's?
Anything for Alzheimer’s™ is an Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories program that enables people across the province to host independent fundraising events and campaigns to support people living with dementia.
While the way we are able to meet and hold certain fundraising events has changed recently, the need to provide programs and services for people facing dementia has not.
Why Take Part?
Across Canada there are more than half a million people currently living with dementia. This number is expected to double by 2031. Over 46,000 Albertans and Northwest Territorians are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. By hosting your own Anything for Alzheimer’s fundraiser, you will join other people and organizations dedicated to making a difference in the lives of care partners and people living with dementia in your community.
Anything for Alzheimer’s allows you to use your creative ideas, outstanding talents, and inspiring passions to turn anything into your own fundraising event.

Being a fundraiser takes a little creativity, some planning, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of people affected by dementia. Here are a few ideas:
- host a Coffee Break,
- organize a virtual activity,
- live stream an event, or
- create a challenge for yourself that friends and family can sponsor.
We love hearing your creative fundraising ideas. Connect with us at [email protected] to discuss your next fundraiser.
