Community Fundraisers
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

A community fundraiser is a company, organization or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Indiana Chapter. We are grateful for dollars raised through events – they help the Association provide programs and services to more than 110,000 Hoosiers touched by Alzheimer's disease.

Because of the volume of these requests, we cannot personally participate in each event that is proposed but will provide materials about the Alzheimer's Association and the services we provide for your event.

How to Get Started 

Upcoming Community Events

The Dan Wheldon Memorial Pro-Am Karting Challenge was held on Saturday, Sept. 19 at New Castle Motorsports Park. Since 2013, $165,000 has been raised for the Alzheimer's Association from this annual event to remember the legendary race car driver. Dan Wheldon was an advocate for his mother with Alzheimer’s disease, and he was determined to raise awareness for the cause and educate people about the importance of early diagnosis. Thank you, Wheldon family, for continuing his legacy!

Event Organizer

The Alzheimer's Association encourages community events (i.e. golf outings, marathons, sales benefiting the Association, etc). As an event organizer, we ask that interested individuals provide all the elements needed to complete the event promotion. Before an individual, company or organization may proceed with a special event or promotion to benefit the Association, they must fill out an agreement provided by the Association. These rules only apply to event organizers who wish to use the name of Alzheimer's Association or its logo in promoting the event, and not to companies organizing internal employee teams.


If you are interested in organizing an event that supports the Alzheimer's Association, please contact Sarah Gretencord at 800.272.3900 or via e-mail at You may also download your third party proposal form and can review the third party fundraiser rules and regulations. We thank you for your interest and support.
