The mission of the Alzheimer Foundation is to raise and grant philanthropic funds that enable the Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners to pursue excellence in programs, services and research.
Through donor support, the Foundation contributes to breakthrough research initiatives, vital programs and services, and compassionate care at the Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners.
Since we receive less than 40% of our funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. We are dependant upon and grateful of the financial support of our donors and funders without which we couldn’t offer the wide array of programs and services made available to our clients at no or minimal cost.

Hope for the Future Fund
The Hope for the Future Fund has been established as an endowed fund for the Alzheimer Foundation Southwest Partners. Income generated by the fund goes towards research, education and support programs. Money directed to this fund can be in memory of someone, with the assurance that it will continue to provide funding for ALZSWP programs and services on an ongoing basis. This means that a gift to Hope for the Future in memory of your loved one becomes a lasting, permanent legacy.
Planning your estate can ensure that your retirement needs are met, and that loved ones will be adequately provided for.
