Looking to host an event that gives to charity? Do Good to End ALZ is the best way to connect your independent fundraising initiative with the Alzheimer's Association.
Alzheimer's is a progressive brain disease that affects memory, thinking and behavior. And it is a growing global health crisis: more than 55 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or another dementia. But every day, the Alzheimer’s Association is working to accelerate research toward treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. Help us end this devastating disease.

Do Good to End ALZ is a great way for individuals, organizations or businesses to collect funds and donate them directly to the Alzheimer's Association. When you host a charitable event or activity, gather the donations and put the funds to use right away through Do Good to End ALZ.
