Who Can Host a DIY Fundraiser?

Each year, individuals and organizations such as civic groups, social clubs, restaurants and businesses raise thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer's Association - Heart of America Chapter. These supporters demonstrate a commitment to the mission of the Alzheimer's Association by involving the community in raising significant funds and awareness for the Chapter.

DIY Event Ideas

DIY fundraisers can be as simple or as extravagant as you wish and can raise anywhere from $200 to $10,000 or more. Simple ideas could include a wine and cheese party for close friends, a garage sale, a jeans or Go Purple day at the office, donating a percentage of sales for a day/week, a school's classroom project or a game night. More exciting ideas include hosting a silent auction, a large dinner party, or a sporting event such as a golf tournament, a basketball tournament or a run. The possibilities are endless.
