Have Fun, Doing Good
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Do you enjoy planning parties for friends, family and coworkers? Have fun and do good by turning your next event into a fundraiser. The possibilities are endless and you get to create your own unique experience to support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. These events are called "third party" fundraisers, and the awareness and funds they raise are important tools in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

Some rules apply to the use of the Alzheimer's Association's name in your fundraising, so please contact us prior to scheduling your event.  If you are interested in hosting a third party fundraiser or have general questions, email us at or call Ashley at 518.867.4999 ext. 210.

Here's some ideas!

Puzzle Marathon
Teachers or community organizations hold puzzle marathons as a way to Maintain Your Brain® while raising pledges for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Ask guests to make donations instead of gifts or in place of wedding favors, make a donation in honor of your guests.

Bowling Tournaments
Organize a group of co-workers, family and friends for some healthy competition. 

Birthdays and anniversaries
Mark the celebration of someone special in your life with a memorial or tribute donation.

Dinner party
Ask your guests to donate what they would have spent on a meal and drinks at a restaurant.

Neighborhood block party
Set up games like badminton or volleyball. Collect donations to play or entry fees for teams.

Movie night
Charge "admission" at your home or pass around an empty popcorn tub for donations.

Garage sale
Donate half the proceeds – and let your buyers know it!

Poker or bridge
Split the winning pot with the Alzheimer's Association. Maybe the winner will donate back to the cause!
