Fundraise for us

Everyday we receive requests from individuals and community groups wanting to make a difference and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

 

There are a number of ways you can get involved:

Become a community fundraiser

There are many people in our community who are touched by dementia and want to help out however they can. 

Throughout the year we have numerous community members who hold their own events or activities to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Australia Vic.

Our community fundraisers organise many types of events and activities, including fundraising dinners and auctions, festivals and concerts, participate in fun runs, classics and all kinds of ‘thons, theatre performances and movie nights, art shows, golf days, and the list goes on.

To facilitate these activities and to promote events to the wider community we ask you to register your event with us.  

Once you are registered, visit our online site - givealzheimersaustraliavic.com.au - to build your very own fundraising page and start raising funds.

Alzheimer’s Australia Vic is able to offer advice and, dependent on resources, assistance with your event.

If you would like to hold a community fundraising event please contact us or download our Community Fundraising Tool Kit (PDF, 2.4 MB).
