Community Fundraising Events

H olding a Community Fundraising Event or what is commonly known as “third party” fundraising events, are a great way to give back to your community while supporting The Dementia Society.  

The event or initiative is organized and promoted by an individual, group or company with some or all of the proceeds allocated to the Society.  The organizers act independently, but with The Dementia Society’s knowledge and in certain cases; approval or direct support. Community Fundraising events/initiatives are an essential resource for helping raise funds,  and awareness that help us carry out our work in the community.    

Very soon we will be launching our new Community Events Program on our website but for now, we are happy to provide you with guidance and support by calling Lisa at 613-523-4004 ext. 3106.

Step 1

Come up with your idea! This is the fun part – how do you want to raise money for The Dementia Society? Add a fundraising twist to an already scheduled event?  Your birthday party?  Girls Night Out?  The Hockey Tournament?  Or create a new event for just this purpose.

Step 2

Complete the online event request form. Our Special Projects Assistant, Lisa Hollingshead will get back to you within a few business days to chat about your event.  She can also provide you with information materials about the Society to be used with your invite or at the event.

Step 3

Have your event! Have fun, take pics, and share online – show the community how much you care by using the power of social media!

Step 4

Report back – tell us how it went, how much money you were successful in raising and when you plan to forward the money to us.  This last portion is really important as we want to be able to issue tax receipts as appropriate and report the good news back to our Community.
