Support Canadians living with Alzheimer’s and help find a cure.
Across Canada, there are more than 747,000 people living with dementia or Alzheimer’s.1 With no known cure, the diagnosis can be devastating for not only those affected, but also for their loved ones. The disease is life-altering, but help is available and scientists are advancing research in hopes of finding a cure.
You can improve quality of life for Canadians diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Your gift to the Life with Alzheimer’s Fund will provide support services and assistance to affected Canadians and their families as they care for their loved ones. You will also support critical research to find new treatments to improve quality of life, or to help discover a cure.
Donate today to help achieve wide-reaching effects in the lives of Canadians living with Alzheimer’s Disease. Plus, your gift will be pooled with donations from other generous Canadians to make a real impact, and you will receive an official charitable tax receipt!
What makes up the Life with Alzheimer's Fund?
The Life with Alzheimer’s Fund by CanadaHelps includes more than 70 registered charities who are supporting Canadians diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their families.
The charities in this Fund are selected through an algorithmic approach, taking the charity’s area of focus, mission, and description into account. This Fund includes charities conducting research to find a cure and charities providing education and support services to help families care for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s.
To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the more than 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred quarterly, subject to a minimum of $10 per charity. We regularly update the list of charities in this Fund.
