Over the last year, being physically isolated became a part of our daily routines. We began to understand the overwhelming feelings of loneliness by being separated from the community —feelings that people living with dementia experience in their day-to-day lives.

At the Alzheimer Society, we strive to do everything we can to minimize those feelings of loneliness and isolation by providing people living with dementia and their care partners access to our social and recreation programming. We have continued to offer many of our programs and services virtually, but we need your help to continue.

That's why we created Social with a Purpose.

Use your Social with a Purpose fundraiser as an opportunity to fundraise while connecting with your friends, family, and community to support people living with dementia.


This kit is for hosts to use as their Social with a Purpose handbook! It includes tips on how to host a virtual event, how to use video conferencing platforms, and promotional materials like social media and an email!



Are you interested in hosting a Social with a Purpose but don’t know where to begin? We’ve got you covered with our easy to use Social with a Purpose digital kits! Ranging from how-to host your own Paint Night, Cooking lessons and more, downloadable fundraising kits and resources will make planning your fundraiser that much easier!

Although we cannot physically be together, stay connected with friends and family by showing those living with dementia and their care partners that we care and want the same for them. We can’t wait to see what amazing Social with a Purpose fundraisers you host!
