Anything for Alzheimer's

read

Our Anything for Alzheimer’s program offers a way for individuals, businesses, schools, and other organizations to support people affected by dementia through hosting their own events or challenges. All you need is a little creativity, some planning, and the desire to make a difference.

You could host a coffee break, take on a challenge, organize a bottle drive, donate your car, celebrate your birthday, or do any other creative idea you dream up – you can truly do Anything for Alzheimer’s!

Ways you can fundraise

Host a Fundraising Event:

ONLINE - You can fundraise online by registering your event HERE  and choosing a category that best suits your fundraiser. Use your Participant Centre to keep track of your fundraising progress and invite your contacts to support your event.

OFFLINE - If you would prefer not to fundraise online but would like to host an in-person fundraiser, please complete our quick and easy Event Registration, and someone will get in touch with you.

Bottle Drive:

Did you know you can donate to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. by organizing a bottle drive with your friends and family, neighbours or your workplace? It’s as easy as collecting beverage containers and returning them to a Return-It Express near you!

To get involved, follow the simple steps from our Bottle Drive Poster. Please also feel free to print and share this poster with your friends and family, so they too can organize a bottle drive!

Donate a Car:

Want to part ways with an older vehicle? You can donate it to support the Alzheimer Society of B.C., by filling out the form at Donate a Car.
