Our Mission

The Alzheimer Society Niagara Foundation is strongly committed to financially sustaining the service needs of the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region in ways that are positive, meaningful, and engaging.

Charitable Registration Number: 812717270RR0001

About Us

The Alzheimer Society Niagara Foundation was initiated after receiving an estate donation in excess of half a million dollars.  It became the fundraising arm of the Society in April of 2008.

The Alzheimer Society Niagara Foundation needs to raise over $600,000 each year to assist the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region in its delivery of programs that provide assistance to people with dementia, their caregivers and family members throughout the Niagara Region who turn to us for information, education and support during their difficult journey. 

Through the generosity of our donors, including monthly donors, those who have made planned gifts through a bequest, life insurance policy or endowment, and those who support our annual events like the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's, Peter Saracino Alzheimer Golf Classic, and Anything for Alz (Coffee Break), we can ensure the viability of the specialized Dementia Care services provided by the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region and our community partners in perpetuity.
