Coffee Break®


Coffee Break® is our major annual fundraiser where friends, co-workers and customers gather in communities across Ontario to raise funds for their local Alzheimer Society.

Host your Coffee Break®

The Alzheimer Society Annual Coffee Break® Campaign runs between September to December. It has been in existence for over 21 years!

The idea behind Coffee Break® is simple: The Alzheimer Society works with community organizations to find fun and easy ways to provide much needed financial support to their local programs and services – money raised in the community stays in the community.

You can support the Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington by hosting a Coffee Break, or by hosting your event of any kind.

It can be as simple as:

  • brewing a pot of coffee and inviting friends, family, colleagues to enjoy a cup with you;
  • dress down day at work;
  • at your next family BBQ, potluck or neighborhood block party, asking everyone to donate in addition to bringing a dish of their choice;
  • spark friendly challenges to your sports team
  • Please note that tax receipts will only be issued for donations $20 or above.

How Can You Help?

We will supply the coffee (if needed), posters, ideas for fundraisers and organization tips. You provide the location, the guests, the passion for the cause and of course, the funds that will go directly to programs and services offered in our communities.
