Anything for Alzheimer’s is a year-round fundraising campaign and we want you to join in!
What is Anything for Alzheimer's?
Anything for Alzheimer's is our do-it-yourself fundraiser in which individuals, community groups, and businesses in our local areas use their creative ideas and passions to host their own fundraisers in support of persons living the dementia journey in our communities.
You can host virtually, in person or a combination of both. The options on how you want to raise funds are endless and are completely up to you!
Why is Anything for Alzheimer's important?
We are a non-profit organization which means fundraising is a vital component to offering programs and services to our clients. The donations from your fundraisers will remain local and go towards our essential programs and support services for persons living with dementia, their care partners, and their families.
The diagnosis of dementia is not easy. People often don’t know what to expect or what comes next. We are the First Link to a community of peers, supporters, and experts. We are dedicated to ensuring no one has to navigate the dementia journey alone – Which is why we need your help!
How can you help? It’s Easy!
