You may have received a phone call on behalf of the Alzheimer Society of Canada. Periodically throughout the year, we reach out to our donors by telephone. Telefundraising is one of the most effective ways we’re able to speak with our donors and raise vitals funds needed to bring services, education programs, support, and trusted information to people with dementia, as well as fund ground-breaking research to find new treatments and eventually a cure.

Alzheimer Society of Canada works with reputable telefundraising agencies, Fundraising Direct and Stratcom Communications. Calling is done in both English and French. Gifts will only be accepted by pre-authorized chequing or credit card account.

The caller will confirm details with you over the phone that only the Alzheimer Society of Canada should be able to confirm, such as the date and amount of your last gift, or how often you have donated.

If at any time you are not comfortable with the phone call, please end the call, and call or email the Alzheimer Society of Canada at 1-800-616-8816 or [email protected] at your earliest convenience to verify the validity of the call. Every call is recorded, and we will be able to assess it if it is a genuine call made by our telefundraising agencies working on behalf of the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
