About Anything for Alzheimer’s
Thinking about hosting an event in support of the Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners? You’ve come to the right place!
Known as Anything for Alzheimer’s these community events are organized independently of the Alzheimer Society by people who want to make a difference in the lives of those living with dementia in their community. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do all the planning alone! We are here to support you and provide you with the resources and tools to make your event successful.
You may already have a fundraiser in mind, but if not, it’s okay! Your event can be big or small, virtual or in-person, recurring or a one-time event… it can be anything! We encourage you to use your creativity, talents and passions to turn anything into your own fundraising event.
Funds from these events are donated to the Society and used to fund programs and services that are being delivered in our local communities. All community events must be approved by the Alzheimer Society and adhere to the Society’s mission and values.
