Frequently Asked Questions


Top Five Questions and Answers for the Fundraiser:

I want to become a fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia, where do I start?

Please fill out the registration form and fill and send it to Dawn Kehoe. Once the application is complete and faxed to 902 422-7971 or emailed to [email protected], we will be in touch.

Where does the money I raise go?

The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia (ASNS) consists of a variety of programs and services to help those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias through information, support and education.

All the money that is raised in the province stays in the province. The money that is raised through a third party fundraiser will go towards services such as: the toll free Alzheimer InfoLine to offer support and guidance to families, support groups across the province and a resource library that offers a wide variety of information for caregivers and persons living with dementia.

Does the Alzheimer Society provide volunteers or staff for my event?

No. ASNS has a very small but dedicated staff and cannot guarantee volunteers or staff at your event. If you would like a representative from the Society to speak at your event, we will do our best to arrange for a staff member to be present according to availability.

Can I use the Alzheimer Society logo on my promotional materials?

Yes. However, all documents with the ASNS logo must be approved by the Society prior to being sent out.

What do I do with all of the collected money?

Please drop the money off to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia and a staff member will give you an unofficial receipt. Or you can mail funds to:

Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia
