“Do It Yourself Fundraisers”
Do you enjoy throwing parties for family, friends and coworkers? Do good and have fun by turning your next event into a, “Do It Yourself,” fundraiser activity to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
The possibilities are endless and you get to create your own unique fundraising experience to support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
Each year, individuals, businesses, and community groups plan and host, “Do It Yourself,” fundraising events and donate the proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Maryland Chapter. It is a great way to engage others to raise awareness and funds. Events can be as simple or as extravagant as you wish.
If you'd like to host your own DIY fundraising event, download our Event Guidelines and contact Kisha James, Associate Director, Special Events to discuss the details and apply for use of the Alzheimer’s Association logo on your event materials. She can be reached at 410.561.9099 or email@example.com
