About Coffee Break®

Coffee Break® is one of the Alzheimer Society of Perth County's biggest annual fundraisers, where friends, co-workers, and customers gather in communities across the province to raise funds for their local Alzheimer Societies.

Participants at these events donate in exchange for a cup of coffee. The money raised stays in that province or community to help support local programs and services.

Where does Coffee Break® take place?

You can organize an event, whether it's large or small, in your community, workplace or home. Here are just a few examples of ideal places to host a Coffee Break®:

  • Large corporations,
  • Small businesses,
  • Hospitals,
  • Schools,
  • Service organizations,
  • Care homes and
  • Private residences.


How do I host a Coffee Break®?

It's easy. You can hold a break in your office, at home, at your church, in a local mall or anywhere you can set up a stand and serve coffee. You can also offer tea and juice, or raise more funds by adding cookies or pastries.

It’s your Coffee Break®, your way — be creative and have fun!

To get started, contact the Alzheimer Society of Perth County to register and receive a host package.

Why should I host a Coffee Break®?

When you host a Coffee Break® in your community, you help raise much-needed funds for local programs and services for people with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. Your support makes a huge difference in their lives.

How much money is raised?

Thanks to our generous sponsors and participants, Coffee Break® raises over $1 million in Ontario every year in support of essential programs and services for people living with dementia, families and caregivers. These programs make all the difference in the way families are able to live with the disease.
