Raise money

With every pound you raise, you are funding new research, providing precious support to more people, and bringing us closer to a world without dementia. So let’s get fundraising! Take a look at our fundraising guide for lots of tips.

Target: We recommend trying to raise a at least £100. The more the better!

Fundraising ideas

Raise sponsorship online

Setting up your own JustGiving page is the easiest way to raise money. Just share the link to your JustGiving page with friends, family and colleagues. It’s exciting to see everyone’s words of encouragement and all the donations you’ve inspired coming in. Just keep plugging your page in order to reach your target. Read some top tips from JustGiving!

Raise some dough (literally)

Who doesn’t love a good bake sale? They’re a really easy, effective (and tasty) way to boost your fundraising total. Host one at work and get your colleagues to bake too. Or get your neighbours involved and set up shop somewhere local. Just a few hours work can make a huge difference.

Raise money at work

Dress down days, or a simple collection are brilliant ways to boost your total and spread the word. Many companies offer matched giving programmes and will double the amount you raise, so it’s definitely worth asking.

Posters and bunting

Use our templates to make your own posters - Walk for a world without dementia, sponsor me and walk for my...

Plus print off some coloured bunting to decorate and encourage people to donate.

How to pay in your money

So you’ve raised money, had a great day out at your local Memory Walk, and next up’s another rewarding part – paying in your sponsorship total. Here’s how.

With a JustGiving page everything’s sorted – all your sponsorship money automatically gets sent to us, so you don’t have to do anything.

With cash, cheques or anything else, simply bank the money and then:

Send a cheque payable to Alzheimer’s Society in the freepost envelope sent to you when you registered; or ring us on 0300 330 5452 and pay by credit or debit card.
