What is a Friendraiser?

Friendraisers are DIY fundraising events developed by individuals or groups (with some management by our staff) who have a personal connection to the Alzheimer's movement and are looking to engage others to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association. Have your company or organization host an after-work event; partner with local restaurants; engage clubs or groups to do car washes or bake sales; and/or organize soft ball or golf tournaments - the possibilities are endless!

Get started today!  Click here to learn more, fill out your agreement form, and set up your online fundraising page (if needed).  Questions?  Contact us at 703.359.4440 or
