Memories in the Making
Alzheimer’s Association Memories in the Making Art Auction is a unique program of creative expression for individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia. Through art and the creative process, these individuals speak to us, offering us the essence of themselves. The art they produce is a tangible means of expression, which speaks to the families, the professional caregivers, and to the public. Once the paintings are complete, pieces are selected to be auctioned off at the Memories in the Making Art Auction. More

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Fundraisers

You can host events that help raise money for your walk team (called Wrap-Around Events) or host your own event (other than a walk) to benefit the Alzheimer's Association (golf tournament, wine tasting, bike ride, etc). It's easy, fun and provides critical support for services of people with Alzheimer's.

Currently, if you would like to use the Alzheimer's Association or Walk to End Alzheimer's registered trademarked logos or their written name for your event, you MUST complete paperwork before using our logo.
- Host your event, and have fun!
